Brief description Aphasia is a chronic communication disability that affects language processing (talking, understanding, reading & writing) after a brain injury, such as a stroke. Access to rehabilitation services is highly variable, compounding experiences of social isolation, depression & poorer quality of life. Our intensive & comprehensive Aphasia LIFT program has yielded improvements in communication & quality of life, & may provide more cost effective rehabilitation. This study examines whether LIFT is more effective than current models of usual care.
