dc.description.abstract Background: Research shows that facilitation therapy for naming is effective through priming the link between meaning and word form (Howard et al., 2006), but often only works for the words that are treated within therapy (Best et al., 2002). Technological advances in computer-assisted programmes have aided the successful implementation of treatment of word finding deficits in aphasia. However, these applications nearly all consist of SLT intervention to modify the programme, emphasising the need for accessibility to an application where the person with aphasia (PWA) can use facilitation therapy themselves and add a word as a particular word-finding difficulty arises and increase treatment intensity, thus having the potential to increase independence and provide efficient and realistic service delivery. Furthermore, there is little qualitative information about PWAs experience of using technology for therapy. en_US
