This study examines the impact of cognition and communication on participation for people with aphasia (PWA). For participation in communication and cognitive-intensive activities among PWA, a modest amount of variance is accounted for by cognition and communication ability. Cognition is a significant independent predictor of participation in communication and cognitive-intensive activities for PWA. To facilitate community re-integration for PWA, OTs must consider internal and external factors.
