The purpose of this article is to provide information relevant to the planning and implementing of intervention for bilingual adults with an acquired aphasia. This information is presented within a broad theoretical framework that highlights the interactions between general cognitive mechanisms (such as attention, perception, memory, and emotion) and language (see Bates & MacWhinney, 1987; MacWhinney, 1997). The first section provides a brief overview of bilingualism in individuals with no neurological impairment. In the second section, clinical implications and a case study of cognitive-linguistic and cross-linguistic interactions in bilingual aphasia are discussed. The final section introduces a general framework for planning and implementing intervention for bilingual individuals with aphasia.
