Melodic Intonation Therapy
Behavioral: Melodic Intonation Therapy
MIT emphasizes the prosody of speech through the use of slow, pitched vocalization (singing).
Active Comparator: SRT
Speech-Reception-Therapy is an equally intensive, alternative verbal treatment method developed for this study.
No Intervention: NTC
No-Therapy Control; Patients in this arm will be re-randomized to the two active arms at the end of the NTC period.
- Correct Information Units (CIU)/min and CIUs/phrase elicited during spontaneous speech [ Time Frame: Baseline (x2), midpoint of therapy, end of therapy, 4 weeks after end of therapy ]
- 1) Items named on a standard picture naming test; 2) timed automatic speech; 3) linguistically-based measures of phrase and sentence analysis; 4) functional and structural imaging measures [ Time Frame: baseline (x2), midpoint of therapy, end of therapy, 4 weeks after end of therapy ]
