Conduction Aphasia Treatment

Sentence Repetition Therapy

Treating conduction aphasia follows the pattern in most cases of aphasia considering that conduction aphasia is considered as mild among other types. Most patients of this condition were able to return to their normal life after therapy. And, indeed, this kind of aphasia still needs therapy, the most common among most utilized treatments is the sentence repetition therapy. Speech pathologists, in this process, require patients to recite words and phrases given to them in the start of the program. They must be able to repeat the given material, and this has been proven effective in helping the brain recover.   

Therapy for Neuroplasticity

Neuroplasticity is an attribute of the brain to rebuild pathways as a way of healing a previously damaged part.  And in the case of Conduction Aphasia, this attribute can be a key to improving any problem in language and speech. Rehabilitation programs at which we combine different therapy approaches will improve neuroplasticity of the brain, leading to faster healing.

The exercises done in therapies will compel and force the brain to create or rebuild these pathways, helping the undamaged parts of it to take over the one affected by injuries or of other causes of aphasia.
