Aphasia Therapy Through the Service Settings:

Effective communication is nowhere more essential than in the healthcare setting where critical decision making about one’s own care and future are taking place. The patient with aphasia presents a tremendous challenge to the SLP as they attempt to provide them with the ability to effectively communicate their wants and needs. The many types and severity levels of the patient with aphasia presents unique challenges in providing effective and consistent service delivery through the many service areas.
