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.

Evidence-Based Practice in Aphasia Treatment

Presented by Janet Patterson, PhD, CCC-SLP

Evidence-Based Practice in Aphasia Treatment

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Evidence-based practice (EBP) relates to how clinicians make assessment and treatment decisions with patients and families. EBP is taught in graduate programs in speech-language pathology. However, as students become practicing clinicians working in fast-paced, contemporary clinical environments, obstacles arise that may prevent consistent, active engagement in EBP. The intent of this course is to discuss EBP and practice-based evidence, provide a model for how to find evidence and determine its quality and relevance, and present suggestions for using the evidence to support good clinical decisions. Several readily available, easy to use tools for finding and evaluating evidence will be demonstrated. At the end of this course, the learner will have knowledge and skills that are readily transferable to clinical practice in any contemporary clinical speech-language pathology's practice in hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, skilled nursing facilities, or home health care settings.
