Please could you advise if you have had experience with the Sensory Trigger Method advocated by http://www.strokefamily.org and whether the method and or products are more likely to be better or worse than any other aphasia therapy program or software package commercially available.

Many Thanks,
John Davis.

Dear John,

I am not familiar with this product. I looked at the website and tried to find other “independent” evaluations of these materials/methods besides those put out by the people who produce the product. It is always helpful to find information - either supportive or not, from other sources. I did not readily find that type of separate information. As you noted, the materials may not be any better or worse than other computer-based products for practice at home. I do not have advice either for or against the product. I am concerned about some of the claims made about how the process “works” in the brain. That does not mean the materials would not be helpful at some level; they may be just fine for promoting speech-language practice for some people with apraxia or aphasia. So, the upshot is that I am not familiar with the Sensory Trigger Method as described and promoted by strokefamily.org. Anne Ver Hoef

Thank you for your yor comments.

It is also my concern that there seems to be no other independant support of the method.
