Efficacité de la Promoting Aphasic’s Communicative Effectiveness-images sur la production syntaxique des aphasiques

Abstract : Aphasia is one of the most frequent cognitive impairments of a left hemispheric stroke. It causes communication and language disorders which impact understanding and expression mode, including syntax disorders which are very common in aphasia. There are several approaches for remediation of syntactic production impairments, including the pragmatic approach. The PACE (Promoting Aphasic’s Communicative Effectiveness) therapy is one of theses approaches. However, it has never been specifically studied in the context of syntactic production remediation. This is why we studied the effectiveness of PACE-image therapy on syntactic production, for three patients with aphasia, respectively at 3, 9 and 1 month post-stroke, through a SCED (Single Case Experimental Design). After a baseline phase without syntactic remediation, rehabilitation using PACE-images therapy has been sequentially and randomly introduced for each patient. Every week, during twenty weeks, patients were tested with repeated measurements to compare their syntactic productions before and during treatment phase. They followed four sessions of forty-five minutes per week. Results have been first visually analyzed and then completed by statistical analysis. A significant training-related effect was found for the three patients and we also observed a generalization effect of untrained abilities for the three patients.
