Assessing quality of metaphor interpretation by right hemisphere damaged patients 2007 289 Patients with right hemisphere damage (RHD) can display various cognitive-linguistic deficits including disrupted comprehension of figurative language such as metaphor (Myers, 1999 and Tompkins, 1995). Most studies documenting figurative language com...
Effects of Prenatal Exposure to Cocaine and Associated Risk Factors on Language Development 1995 22 During the past decade there has been a dramatic increase in the number of children born with prenatal exposure to cocaine. However, there is very little hard data concerning the later development of these children. The purpose of this preliminary st...
Improved Language in a Chronic Nonfluent Aphasia Patient After Treatment With CPAP and TMS 2010 349 Objective: To present pretreatment and post-treatment language data for a nonfluent aphasia patient who received 2 treatment modalities: (1) continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for his sleep apnea, starting 1-year poststroke; and (2) repetitiv...
Measuring premorbid IQ in aphasia using indirect lexical access 2006 677 Estimating premorbid IQ is an important facet to neuropsychological or language evaluations, as it can provide valuable information when determining if performance represents a decline or impairment. In aphasia, assessment of premorbid abilities is d...
A metaphor comprehension intervention for patients with right hemisphere brain damage: A pilot study 2006 665 This intervention program addresses an important need in the clinical literature: tools for remediation of communication deficits associated with right hemisphere brain damage (RHD). Our program is motivated by the literature documenting non aphasic ...
Nature-Based Therapy: Its Potential as a Complementary Approach to Treating Communication Disorders 2004 766 Nature-based therapy (NBT) has been incorporated into the practice of many medical and mental health professions.

Selective Training of Theory of Mind in Traumatic Brain Injury: A Series of Single Subject Training Studies 2015 782 Primary Objective:To examine the potential for treating deficits in Theory of Mind (ToM), i.e., using a person’s beliefs to understand and predict behaviour, and to test the hypothesis that improvements in ToM can be distinguished from performance in...

A much less common phenomenon is the onset of stuttering in ...
Theory of Mind Training Following Traumatic Brain Injury: A Pilot Study: 0045 2006 287 [North American Brain Injury Society's Sixth Annual Conference on Brain Injury: October 2–4, 2008, New Orleans, Louisiana: Abstract]
Training theory of mind following right hemisphere damage: A pilot study 2007 474 Successful communicative interactions in large part rely on an ability to infer the mental states of conversational partners. Understanding other people’s mental states, such as thoughts, beliefs, and emotions, allows us to understand and predict the...
Treating metaphor interpretation deficits subsequent to right hemisphere brain damage: Preliminary results 2011 366 Aims: This investigation sought to determine whether a structured intervention focused on improving use of semantic associations could improve patients' ability to provide oral interpretations of metaphors following right hemisphere damage (RHD).Meth...
Treatment of Metaphor Interpretation Deficits Subsequent to Traumatic Brain Injury 2013 618 Objective: To improve oral interpretation of metaphors by patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI).Design: Both single subject experimental design and group analysis.Setting: Patients’ homes.Participants: Eight adult patients with moderate to sever...
Using lexical familiarity judgments to assess verbally mediated intelligence in aphasia 2008 511 In this study, a task using forced-choice lexical familiarity judgments of irregular versus archaic words (a newly developed measure called the Lexical Orthographic Familiarity Test; LOFT) was compared to a standardized oral word-reading measure (the...
