Abstract

This is the first study since 1985 to explore the components of group aphasia therapies as identified by practicing clinicians.  In this pilot study, 10 American speech-language pathologists were given a standardized open-ended interview about clinical experiences.  General themes were found within common treatment components.  The findings of the current study provide a comparison to current theoretical discussions on group aphasia therapy and describe the protocols for current therapy approaches.  Additionally, the pilot study forms a foundation for a larger interview study aimed at examining what group aphasia therapies are most commonly used and how and why they are implemented.
