Abstract

This paper aims to test the influence of premorbid verbal intelligence on the nature of aphasia and spontaneous speech recovery and to study the role of a micro-social environment on the effectiveness of speech rehabilitation.

The quantitative and qualitative methods of analyses as well as special parameters to determine characteristics of the communicative-speech environment and the degree of its influence on the process of speech recovery were selected.

A total of 65 patients with aphasia have been selected to study the effect of multilingualism on the efficacy of speech therapy. Family members of 150 patients with aphasia were interviewed to find out the micro-social environment effects on the process of aphasia rehabilitation and to inquire about a correlation between the degrees of involvement of the patient's environment in the process of speech therapy.

The factor of multilingualism and factor of the communicative-speech environment are interrelated with each other and the choice and appropriate use of language by the patients with aphasia need to be controlled from the outside.
