Using tDCS in Speech-Based Stroke Rehabilitation

October 1, 2019
CLINICAL TRIAL: 
In-Progress / Currently Recruiting Participants

Person using tDSC for speech rehab

Qualifying participants who have had a stroke and have apraxia of speech will receive up to 24 speech therapy sessions over a 4 to 6 month period, at no charge. 

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), a form of non-invasive brain stimulation, will also be used during a portion of speech therapy. tDCS is considered a non-risk device by the FDA, and is safe to use. Low doses of electrical current will be administered through the scalp over areas that may assist with speech recovery.
