Abstract

Relatively little is known about the best practices for language therapy in bilingual aphasia. This systematic review examined three crucial questions faced by speech-language pathologists during clinical decision making: outcomes when language therapy is provided in the secondary language (L2), extent of cross-language transfer (CLT) and variables that influence CLT, and outcomes when language therapy is mediated by a language broker. Data from 14 studies (N=45 aphasic individuals) indicate that treatment in L2 leads to positive outcomes (akin to L1 treatment); CLT occurred in about half of the studies, especially when L1 was the language of treatment.
