[Correspondence] Intensive speech and language therapy after stroke

Caterina Breitenstein and colleagues (April 15, p 1528)1 reported that 3 weeks of intensive speech and language therapy significantly enhanced verbal communication in people aged 70 years or younger with chronic aphasia after stroke. The primary outcome measure was assessed using the Amsterdam-Nijmegen Everyday Language Test (ANELT) A-scale, and the mean difference of the ANELT A-scale score improved 2·61 (SD 4·94) points from baseline to after intensive speech and language therapy, but not from baseline to after treatment deferral.
