Abstract

Cooperative group treatment for aphasia based on cooperative learning principles is designed to improve communication skills during small, two-member group interactions. The treatment involves teamwork incorporating positive interdependence, face-to-face promotive interaction, individual accountability, and group processing. Group size, treatment rationales, partner and clinician roles, arrangement of groups, and outcome measures are described. Examples of cooperative learning activities suitable for adapting to group treatment are provided.
