Approximately 700 empirical research studies have been conducted that examine treatment outcomes in adults with acquired language impairment. This rich body of literature provides guidance regarding the therapeutic value of interventions that target skills across communication modalities. What appears to be lacking, however, is a comprehensive, integrated framework for treatment planning that might serve as a guide for clinical decision-making. Such a heuristic framework is proposed here for consideration. The schema is not intended to be prescriptive in a rigid sense, but rather should help to guide clinical practice and to invite further refinement and evaluation.
