BACKGROUND Intensive speech therapy improves language function in patients with chronic aphasia, although treatment in the acute phase is more effective than in the chronic phase. Unfortunately, most patients with stroke go untreated due to socioeconomic problems. This study was performed to develop and test a speech therapy-based telerehabilitation program (iAphasia), suitable for use on a mobile device platform, which would expand access to therapy to patients who frequently go untreated…

TLDR
The use of telerehabilitation by means of VRRS-Tablet could be one of the best solutions to treat aphasic patients after their discharge, promoting continuity of care by monitoring functional outcomes, maintaining preserved abilities, reducing depression, and improving linguistic functions, besides the psychological well-being.
RecoverNow: Feasibility of a Mobile Tablet-Based Rehabilitation Intervention to Treat Post-Stroke Communication Deficits in the Acute Care Setting
TLDR
Individualized speech-language therapy delivered by mobile tablet technology is feasible in acute care for patients with communication deficits following acute stroke.
In-Home Synchronous Telespeech Therapy to Improve Functional Communication in Chronic Poststroke Aphasia: Results from a Quasi-Experimental Study.
TLDR
It showed that multimodal language therapy delivered through synchronous telerehabilitation had positive effects on functional communication in chronic aphasia.
Therapist-Guided Tablet-Based Telerehabilitation for Patients With Aphasia: Proof-of-Concept and Usability Study
TLDR
The novel system that enables aphasic patients to train at home using language-related tasks autonomously, allows therapists to remotely assign individualized tasks in an easy and time-efficient manner, and tracks the patient’s progress as well as creation of new individual exercises has potential for treatment of patients with aphasia as a supplement to face-to-face therapy.
SATISFACTION WITH IN-HOME SPEECH TELEREHABILITATION IN CHRONIC POST-STROKE APHASIA : AN EXPLORATORY ANALYSIS
Patient satisfaction with healthcare has a major impact on clinical outcomes and compliance. Satisfaction with telehealth services for speech and language problems has been documented but not in
Technical Features, Feasibility, and Acceptability of Augmented Telerehabilitation in Post-stroke Aphasia—Experiences From a Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Synchronous telerehabilitation for post-stroke aphasia is feasible and acceptable and shows tolerable technical fault rates with high satisfaction among patients and pathologists and is feasibly and ready to be implemented across a range of clinical settings and contexts.
Determining the effect of tele-rehabilitation on patients with stutter using the goal attainment scaling (GAS)
TLDR
Rehabilitation through video conferencing was effective for patients with stuttering, improved their speech, and decreased their stuttering.
Refining an Asynchronous Telerehabilitation Platform for Speech-Language Pathology: Engaging End-Users in the Process
TLDR
Results from an usability study that considered the needs of two end-user groups, people with aphasia and clinicians, in the on-going refinement of eSALT highlight the importance of including end-users in the process of technology refinement, in order to ensure effective and efficient use of the technology.
Effects of computer-based therapy versus therapist-mediated therapy in stroke-related aphasia: Pilot non-inferiority study.
TLDR
The overall pattern of findings suggested computer-based intervention was not inferior to traditional therapist-mediated intervention for enhancing functional communication deficits in stroke-related aphasia during the acute phase of recovery.
The feasibility, usability and acceptability of a tablet-based aphasia therapy in the acute phase following stroke.
TLDR
The aphasia exercise program in 'STAPP' is feasible to use as an additional rehabilitation tool along with standard of care in the acute phase post-stroke.

Promoting recovery in chronic aphasia with an interactive technology.
TLDR
Specific measures of language function can be broadly, positively, and significantly influenced by computer-based language therapy in chronic aphasia.
A Telescreening Tool to Detect Aphasia in Patients with Stroke.
TLDR
The telescreening test may overcome the limitations of test administration and may be a convenient and cost-effective alternative to the existing aphasia screening tests for patients with stroke.
Telerehabilitation, virtual therapists, and acquired neurologic speech and language disorders.
TLDR
Research studies have used telerehab systems to assess and treat disorders including dysarthria, apraxia of speech, aphasia, and mild Alzheimer disease and show thattelerehab is a valid and reliable vehicle for delivering speech and language services.
The Therapeutic Effect of Neurologic Music Therapy and Speech Language Therapy in Post-Stroke Aphasic Patients
TLDR
It is concluded that the two therapies are effective treatments in the chronic stage of stroke and NMT is effective in subacute post-stroke aphasic patients.
Intensity of Aphasia Therapy, Impact on Recovery
TLDR
Intense therapy over a short amount of time can improve outcomes of speech and language therapy for stroke patients with aphasia.
Aphasia assessment and functional outcome prediction in patients with aphasia after stroke
TLDR
The study highlights that AAT is the predictor of functional outcome in the patient with aphasia, among the functions of language, comprehension seems to be the most important predictive factor of total- and cognitive-FIM, while spontaneous speech appears to be a predictor of motor-F IM.
Aphasia after Stroke: Type, Severity and Prognosis
TLDR
The outcome for language function was predicted by initial severity of the aphasia and by the initial stroke severity (assessed by the Scandinavian Stroke Scale), but not by age, sex or type of aphasIA.
Speech and language therapy for aphasia following stroke.
TLDR
SLT facilitated by a therapist-trained and supervised volunteer appears to be as effective as the provision of SLT by a professional and there was insufficient evidence to draw any conclusions in relation to the effectiveness of one SLT approach over another.
Recovery from Aphasia and Neglect
TLDR
Several aspects of recovery from aphasia, namely its time course, the influence of biographical, gender, education, handedness, language, language components, and lesion factors and the potential impact of speech therapy and pharmacotherapy on spontaneous recovery will be discussed.
Improvement in Aphasia Scores After Stroke Is Well Predicted by Initial Severity
TLDR
There is a highly predictable relation between aphasia recovery and initial impairment, which is also proportional in nature and suggests that common mechanisms may govern reduction of poststroke neurologic impairment across different functional domains and that they could be the focus of therapeutic intervention.
