Abstract

This article aimed at discussing the clinical significance of cognitive behavior language therapy in treating
aphasia among stroke patients. The present discussion was based on empirical evidence found in the
literature. The result of this review shows that cognitive-behavior language therapy has a clinical impact in
treating aphasia among stroke patients. The reviewed study reported a significant reduction in aphasia and
speech-language unhelpful thought and beliefs. Also, the need for more randomized trials to further express
the clinical impact of cognitive behavior language therapy for aphasia following stroke was emphasized.
