How is Aphasia Treated?

There are dozens of ways that speech-language pathologists (SLPs) treat aphasia. The type of treatment a person receives is generally determined by the type of aphasia he or she has, as well as the severity of it. However, it can also be guided by the need of individual patients and their families as it relates to activities of daily living.
