The American Stroke Foundation is a great source for all your inquiries. They are at http://www.americanstroke.org or 913-649-1776. They have both sides of the stateline covered. There is also Aphasia Conversation Group in KC MO and you can find out more at 816-501-4732.

Good Luck!

Nakura - I have posted this question for our professional of the Month to answer. I am so sorry to read about your son’s accident. It is heartbreaking. I will pray for his complete recovery.

Hi Tirtza - the Aphasia Hope site has a couple of articles on Melodic Intonation Therapy. Go to Search and enter “Melodic” and you will find one which will link to others and also to an entry by Harvey Alter who regained his speech mostly through this therapy. Good Luck!

I received the following information from Dr. Katie Holland regarding Landau-Kleffner syndrome:

I have attached a brief review of epileptic aphasia. The review is not a great review of treatments largely because there are no good studies on the treatment of Landau-Kleffner syndrome “LKS”. Four popular choices are steroids, high dose valium, several anticonvulsant drugs, and immunogloblins. However, other treatments are also used. All of these are in addition to speech therapy.

Let me know how I can be of assistance.

Danielle - If you will email me at [email protected], I can forward you the attachment as I couldn’t attach it in this forum format. I am also enclosing an abstract of this article There is an email address for one of the doctors that may be able to help you.

Here is the link for the abstract. If you right click and copy then paste it into your browser, it should work. http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/abstract/109608901/ABSTRACT?CRETRY=1&SRETRY=0

Blessings to you. I hope this helps!
