Rééducation collective de la mémoire de travail de patients aphasiques : étude de faisabilité d’un protocole

Abstract : Linguistic component alteration can cause communication troubles in aphasiology. Though, working memory and executive functions deficits are frequent in aphasia. A therapy adapted to patients with language diseases is necessary, by means of adapted material with their linguistic features. We resumed a previous study (Legros, 2013) and adapted the exercises already proved, using non-verbal material. The purpose of our study is to assign patients to balanced tasks based on Baddeley model (2000) in order to reeducate working memory components in a group therapy. We aim to show an improvement of abilities and a transfer of benefits in everyday life. Our methodology uses pre and post-protocol baselines. The results analysis for this multiple case study shows a partial improvement of working memory abilities and benefits transfers in everyday life for reeducated patients. We validated the hypothesis that group therapy promotes reinsurance and emulation thanks to the ensuing exchanges and feedbacks. Our results allowed us to conclude with the feasibility of this protocol providing its prolongation by delivering numerous rehabilitation sessions. A statistical significance could be found in a numerous sample of individuals to prove its efficiency.
