Instructions and FAQs
What will I need to get started?
Listen-In has been tested in a clinical trial with individuals with aphasia.
- 35 adults with aphasia caused by stroke
- Average age = 61 years
- Average time since stroke = 76 months
- All participants completed 12 weeks of Listen-In therapy, at home
- Average time spent on therapy = 85 hours
- 30 participants improved their understanding of practiced words
- On average, participants returned to 'normal performance' by 31% for practiced words
('Normal performance' = same age adults without aphasia)
