Life Participation Approach to Aphasia

The Life Participation Approach to Aphasia Project Group was comprised of a group of clinicians and researchers who had similar views regarding the importance of re-engagement in life. The statement of values were not meant to be prescriptive, but rather to provide ideas for discussion. This is a link to the original article published in the ASHA Leader in 2000. The statement of values was reprinted in Language Intervention Strategies in Aphasia and Related Neurogenic Communication Disorders (Chapey, R. (Ed.). (2008) Baltimore, MD: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.).
