Recently, there has been renewed interest in intensive aphasia treatment, and there are now several programs around the country that offer intensive aphasia treatment. When aphasia centers were created around World War II, the treatment offered followed a more educational model, and individual and group sessions were typically scheduled for several hours per day, 5 days a week. Outcomes of these early programs were positive, and since that time many other reports of positive outcomes of aphasia treatment offered at intensive levels have been reported. The current interest in intensive aphasia treatment probably stems from the positive reports and also from a developing understanding of neural and behavioral mechanisms of learning and behavior change among adults with aphasia, including chronic aphasia.
