Mise en place d'un protocole de rééducation de la mémoire de travail chez un patient aphasique sévère : les effets sur le langage oral et la communication

Abstract : Much research have shown the involvement of working memory in the language activities, in a pathological context, such as aphasia. However, no studies have been conducted on severe aphasic patients, on account of the lack of adapted therapeutic tools. So, in this study, we have developped a rehabilitation protocol of working memory, adapted to an aphasic patient with severe language disorders. This protocol has been established, afterwards, on fifty sessions. Otherwize, we found interesting to observe its outcomes on the language and communication. Moreover, a classic speech language therapy was also initiated. Therefore, our study included, the objectivization of the evolution of language and communication, after a speech language therapy solely, and combined with working memory rehabilitation. With this end, three assessments, over one year, have been realized. Our outcomes have allowed to observe the protocol's adaptability on a severe aphasia. However it can't be generalized to all aphasic patients, without adaptations to clinical profile. The language assessments have shown the lack of rehabilitation's generalization to the language skills, since no increase was objectified. Conversely, the communicational skills were marked by an utilization more spontaneous of non verbal communication tools. The literature data have allowed us to suppose that this evolution would come from our rehabilitation protocol of working memory. It is the same for the autonomy's gain, as daily ones, that has been objectified, through self assessment questionnaires.
