Assessment of Individuals with Primary Progressive Aphasia
Speech-language pathologists SLPs play a crucial role in assessment and treatment of individuals with primary progressive aphasia PPA. The speech-language evaluation is a critical aspect of the diagnostic and rehabilitative process, informing differential diagnosis as well as intervention planning and monitoring of cognitive-linguistic status over time. The evaluation should include a thorough case history and interview and a detailed assessment of speech-language and cognitive functions, with tasks designed to detect core and associated deficits outlined in current diagnostic criteria. As such, the speech-language evaluation allows the medical team to provide individuals with PPA and their families with appropriate recommendations for the present and the future. Primary progressive aphasia PPA is a disorder marked by a gradual loss of communicative function caused by neurodegenerative disease affecting speech and language networks in the brain 1 , 2. The last two decades have brought a great deal of progress in clarifying these clinical phenotypes and their neuropathological underpinnings and, increasingly, patients are referred to speech-language pathologists SLPs for assessment and treatment. This paper will focus on approaches to assessment in PPA, the purposes of which are threefold: 1 to establish the PPA diagnosis and clinical variant, when possible, 2 to determine appropriate interventions for patients and their families, and 3 to track progression of deficits over time.
