Abstract

Aphasia couples therapy (Boles, 2009) has a brief and all too obscure history. A variety of terms have been applied to this form of therapy. This paper reviews evidence for the efficacy of the approach that recruits the significant others of people with aphasia to assume the role of therapist, with the speech-language therapist assuming the role of “coach.”
