Title: Treatment for aphasia following stroke: Evidence for effectiveness
Source: International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders 1998 33(Suppl): 158-161
Year: 1998
Research Design: Systematic Review

A systematic review of SLT for aphasia following stroke, for the Cochrane Collaboration Stroke Group. Twelve randomised controlled trials were identified, however there was no standard comparison group amongst the trials. Based on this review, it is not possible to reach a conclusion about the effectiveness of the treatments evaluated in these trials. Further research is therefore indicated, and SLTs must base decisions about treatment for aphasia on other forms of evidence.
