Analysis of the Therapeutic Application of Lingraphica
Newly released findings from research conducted by Dr. Shawnise Carter, CCC-SLP, SLP.D
In Spring of 2022, Dr. Shawnise Carter, CCC-SLP, SLP.D completed her capstone research project on the topic of the effect of repeated trials during confrontational naming using an AAC device on the production of nouns in persons with chronic expressive aphasia. Out of a pool of over 300, three participants, who met inclusion criteria, were studied over the course of nine sessions. Scroll this page to see the highlights of Dr. Carter’s findings.
Recovery at All Stages
The participants in this study ranged from two to eight years post stroke or brain injury and each showed marked improvement in their ability to produce nouns following stimulation from an AAC device. Each noun was presented over five (5) repetitions and repeated by the participant.

More than functional communication
Although these individuals are verbal, practice on the Lingraphica AAC device helped reduce the number of errors during confrontational naming. A communication device is often identified as a tool to achieve functional communication but is rarely considered an instrument to elicit language through its multimodal capabilities. Clinicians who work with and treat this population should consider the therapeutic nature of an SGD with easy programming functionality.
