Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

People with poststroke aphasia typically experience poorer outcomes than those with stroke without aphasia. OT students in an SRSC complete training designed to minimize communication barriers and improve care for persons with aphasia. Outcomes in the SRSC were compared between clients with (n = 6) and without poststroke aphasia (n = 13). Data analyses indicated that the two groups made similar progress, suggesting that comparable care was delivered.
