The efficacy of outpatient and community-based aphasia group interventions: A systematic review

Lanyon, L. E., Rose, M. L., Worrall, L.,

Academic Literature

2013

Aphasia can be defined as the inability to understand or produce speech. This article seeks to examine the efficiency of community and outpatient aphasia groups using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) framework. Results indicate that community and outpatient group participation improve specific linguistic processes. Further well-designed studies, particularly examining activity and participation, and contextual factors are required to advance community and outpatient aphasia group practice and participation.
