How to Treat Aphasia

Friday, 27 May 2011 10:06 AM

Aphasia symptoms: The most common aphasia symptoms are language problems and difficulty in expressing oneself. Other aphasia symptoms include jumbled speech, inability to form sentences, and trouble understanding speech. Two other slightly uncommon aphasia symptoms are difficulty in reading and writing.

Aphasia Treatment: The following are various ways in which aphasia can be treated.

• Speech-language therapy is the best way to treat aphasia symptoms. This treatment includes responding to shown images, repetition of phrases, and scores of speech drills.
• Computer-assisted speech therapy programs are also useful that employ specific computer programs to treat aphasia.
• Medications are secondary aphasia treatment options involving administration of drugs such as bromocriptine. Donepezil is another drug that promises effective aphasia treatment.
• Constrained-Induced Therapy (CI) is the most novel aphasia treatment method. CI therapy employs other methods as opposed to the “learned” methods of treating aphasia. CI therapy requires patients to talk despite their inability to do so.
