The effect of tablet based logopedic therapy in patients with stroke-related aphasia

Abstract
Post-stroke aphasia has a negative impact on linguistic abilities and the well-being of patients. Multiple studies are available showing positive effects of online therapy, as measured with classic language tests. This randomized, double-blinded, sham-controlled study aims to investigate the effect of additional online speech therapy with the Speech Therapy App (STAPP) in adults with chronic stroke-related aphasia. STAPP is a cognitive linguistic therapy focusing on the modules of Ellis & Young (Feiken et al., 2020). Three patients practiced five hours a week with STAPP, in addition to traditional speech therapy (STAPP group). Four patients received cognitive stimulation by means of a tablet, in addition to traditional speech-language therapy and four patients received traditional speech-language therapy only. The duration of the therapy programs was three weeks. The effects were measured using classic language batteries and electrophysiological measures (event-related potentials/ERPs). Online speech-language therapy could be effective in addition to traditional speech-language therapy, as shown by the ERP results. A higher (more negative) mean amplitude of the mismatch negativity (MMN) was identified across the three groups. Over the entire period, the STAPP group showed the greatest increase in MMN amplitude, as compared to the other groups. However, in none of the three groups significant therapy-related changes were found regarding the scores on classic language tests and the amplitude and latency of the MMN.
