The treatment for aphasia patients depends on the cause of the syndrome. In the acute states stroke treatment or blood pressure therapies may help. Surgeries and antiviral therapy may also be beneficial.

Language and speech therapy is beneficial in the treatment of aphasia patients. The results vary on a wider scale based on the situation of treatment, but studies have proven that language and speech therapy is helpful in aphasia treatment.
