As a consequence of the disability movement, the thinking generated by the World Health Organization's classification of disability and functioning, and an upturn in concern for the long-term consequences of aphasia, it has become apparent that two distinctive pathways for the treatment of aphasia have emerged over the past decade. The first (and most traditional) involves assessment and management directed toward lessening the effects of the impairment of aphasia, while the second pathway focuses less on specific language than on the psychosocial consequences of aphasia. This unique text specifically contrasts impairment- and consequences-focused treatment with the aim of providing clinicians with a level playing field that permits them to evaluate for themselves the relative contributions that each approach provides, to evaluate their relative strengths and weaknesses, and finally to seek common ground. An opening chapter sets the scene, while the heart of the book, based on real cases, concerns five meticulously described, yet hypothetical individuals with aphasia. In each of the cases, detailed descriptions and assessment results are provided and clinical management plans, representing each approach, are presented internationally by recognized expert clinicians.

Roelien Bastiaanse is a Professor in Neurolinguistics at the University Groningen. She worked for 7 years in a rehabilitation center as a clinical linguist, before completing her PhD on aphasia.Cynthia Thompson is Ralph and Jean Sundin Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University. She also holds appointments in the departments of Linguistics, Neurology, and the Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer�s Disease Center. Director of the Aphasia and Neurolinguistics Research Laboratory, the primary goals of her work are to examine language breakdown and recovery patterns in aphasia (with emphasis on grammatical impairments), examine the neural mechanisms associated with normal and disordered language processing and recovery, and develop and test linguistically based treatments for aphasia. Her research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIDCD) for over 18 years and has resulted in over 100 publications.
