Abstract

This presentation describes the procedures and results of a systematic review of the literature on communication partner training in aphasia. A search of thirteen databases resulted in 28 relevant articles published in English between 1975 and April, 2008. These included 8 group studies varying from randomized controlled trials to uncontrolled pre-post studies, 7 single-subject experimental designs, 5 qualitative research designs and 8 case studies. Studies were independently reviewed by two reviewers. Results revealed a wide range of quality scores. Most studies fell in the weaker AAN evidence strength classes. However, 3 studies met the criteria for Class I research.
