Joan, Claudia's MLU is actually quite high, when she is allowed to speak without restriction. However, her speech intelligibility deteriorates in such situations at present. So, as I described in the previous post, we plan to gradually reduce the level of structure of the activities, which will allow Claudia more freedom in her talking turns. As therapy becomes less structured, more attention may need to be given to helping her organize her utterances so that they flow in a logical sequence, and her listener can follow her message.
