abstract

  • This chapter describes the RehabSelfPrime-Speech intervention technique used among patients with moderate disability caused by Parkinson’s diseases. The aim of the intervention is to promote functional independence. It addresses how clients living with Parkinson’s disease learn to use self-priming to initiate movement-related actions (Maitra and Dasgupta, Occup Ther Int 12(4):218-233, 2005; Maitra, Clin Rehab 21(5):418-424, 2007). The client reads action words, which are semantically related to occupational performance of daily living tasks (e.g., get up from a chair, reach for tools or food, or grasp a pen and a paper). The RehabSelfPrime-Speech intervention technique is based on Pulvermuller et al.’s (Eur J Neurosci 21(3):793-797, 2005) language-perception-action theory, well-established repetition priming paradigm (Fleischman, Cortex 43:889-897, 2007) and empirical data on movement disorder related to Parkinson’s disease and stroke (Maitra et al., Am J Occup Ther 60(2):146-154, 2006; Maitra, Clin Rehabil 21(5):418-424, 2007).
