Abstract

In clinical aphasiology, there are a number of well-accepted concepts that are considered organizing constructs in the discipline. One such construct is the concept of spontaneous recovery (SR). This construct influences the expectations that we hold regarding the time frame for greatest recovery and for best clinical response, and a host of theoretical and organizing principles that determine much of our planning and research design and that guide our expectations with respect to treatment, recovery, reimbursement, and explanatory mechanisms for recovery. However, the construct itself has been little studied.
