ABSTRACT: Language, speech, cognitive-associated communication deficits, and dysphagia are common following acquired brain injury (stroke, traumatic brain injury, and others). Treatment of these disorders can be divided into restorative, compensatory, and supportive approaches. Although therapy must be individualized for each person, components of all three approaches are necessary to maximize an individual’s recovery. This article provides a general overview of traditional as well as state-of-the-art treatment for aphasia, cognitive-linguistic impairments, dysarthria, apraxia, and dysphagia.
