How to Select the Best Therapy for Persons with Aphasia

Presented by Jacqueline Hinckley, PhD, CCC-SLP

How to Select the Best Therapy for Persons with Aphasia

Many therapies exist for treating patients with aphasia. Following the World Health Organization Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health, treatment strategies and techniques can be broadly classified into two groups: impairment-focused techniques and participation-focused techniques. Evidence exists to show that treatments in each group can facilitate improvement in the communication status and abilities of a person with aphasia. Because treatment techniques tend to be identified as impairment-focused techniques and participation-focused, clinicians tend to consider selection and application for treatment techniques as an "either-or" decision, which may not be the most efficient way to select treatment. In this course two models for selecting therapies will be discussed: the additive model in which therapies are often delivered in a sequential manner, and the integrative model in which therapy decisions are functionally guided from a top-down goal decomposition approach.

Selecting Aphasia Treatment: Case Examples

The purpose of this course is to explore in detail the process by which a clinician selects a therapy based on treatment goals. We will do this by using three case examples of individuals with different types and severities of aphasia. The two presenters will also discuss each case in terms of impairment-focused and participation-focused treatment choices.

Engaging Persons with Aphasia in Community Resources

The value of participating in group activities to an individual's psychosocial and physical well-being is clear from research evidence. This is the case both for persons without and with aphasia. Gaps exist between the evidence base and implementing participation activities from the perspectives of community groups welcoming a person with aphasia (PWA), determining the interest or willingness of a PWA to participate in a group, and the strategies available to a PWA or caregiver to translate the desire into reality. This course will present the evidence describing the value of group membership to PWA and, through a series of case examples, will discuss the challenges faced by clinicians, PWA, and caregivers in accessing, joining, and sustaining membership in community groups.
