This course reviewed the literature on typical language recovery patterns for bilingual adults with aphasia, and how these patterns should be considered in the evaluation, trial, development of the treatment plan and implementation of an AAC device, for these patients. It also explored factors of bilingual language processing and cultural considerations, as well as the Code of Ethics we practice.
