We discussed improvements in persons with chronic conduction aphasia after resumption of therapy with a clinical, computerbased program using interactive exercises. Participants learned where and at what levels significant improvements occurred, including impairment and functional communication levels, according to Western Aphasia Battery and Communicative Effectiveness Index assessments.
