  1. 1. Shirley Morganstein, MA CCC-SLP Marilyn Certner Smith, MA CCC-SLP Speaking of Aphasia, LLC Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011 Thematic Language Stimulation
  2. 2. Introduction: TLS Philosophy Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011 What ’s TLS?
  3. 3. TLS Definition <ul><li>Thematic language stimulation (TLS) is a systematic method of aphasia therapy that employs thematically-related vocabulary in multimodality stimulation , targeting changes in language processing for functional communication. </li></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
  4. 4. TLS Flow: A Process <ul><li>Begins with a select group of words, related in meaning. </li></ul><ul><li>Places words in particular linguistic contexts. </li></ul><ul><li>Uses words in tasks that employ both input and output modes. </li></ul><ul><li>Targets improvement of underlying language processes for conversational success. </li></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
  5. 5. Role of the Therapist in TLS <ul><li>Carries the burden of success. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides a link between what the PWA knows and what he shows. </li></ul><ul><li>The neurobiological catalyst. </li></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
  6. 6. The Therapist and the PWA <ul><li>Stimulation: improved language performance. </li></ul><ul><li>Observation during stimulation: reveals information about underlying processes. </li></ul><ul><li>Awareness of processes: has value in conversational strategy development </li></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
  7. 7. TLS: Elements of the Definition <ul><li>Thematic language stimulation (TLS) is a systematic method of aphasia therapy… </li></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
  8. 8. How is it systematic? <ul><li>Presents material in hierarchical arrangement </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Best modality first </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Easiest S-R format first </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The “Alice-in-Wonderland” phenomenon </li></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011 “ Begin at the beginning, continue through the middle, and stop when you come to the end. ”
  9. 9. TLS: Elements of the Definition <ul><li>… that employs thematically-related vocabulary in multimodality stimulation </li></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
  10. 10. Thematically-related vocabulary? <ul><li>Meaningful content and personal relevance heighten therapeutic effect via contextual language elements. </li></ul><ul><li>Capitalizes on the organizational systems and elements already well-established within the brain, rather than creating new ones. </li></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
  11. 11. Multimodality stimulation? <ul><li>Language involves speaking, understanding, reading, and writing. Schuell (1964)felt remediation should employ all of these modalities in order to enhance therapeutic effect. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>At the right level in each modality </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In every session </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In a sensible progression of activity and task requirements </li></ul></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
  12. 12. TLS: Elements of the Definition <ul><li>… targeting changes in language processing for functional communication. </li></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
  13. 13. Changing processes for functional communication? <ul><li>TLS hypothesis is that you are changing the way the brain is working, by “working the brain”. </li></ul>Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
  14. 14. Brain Work: Neurobiological Evidence Morganstein & Certner-Smith, 2011
