Computerised Aphasia Therapy for Chronic Aphasia (CATChES)
CATChES explores the effectiveness and usability of self-delivered iPad app speech therapy in a chronic aphasia population. By coupling neuropsychological data with functional imaging, this project explores the relationship between inner speech in chronic aphasia and functional speech improvement after using the iPad-based therapy.
