• We have devised a new approach to the therapy of aphasia. Rather than focus on rehabilitation of linguistic errors, we treat perseveration, which may be an integral component of the aphasic symptoms. In this report we provide key elements of our Treatment of Aphasic Perseveration (TAP) technique, and the successful use of this method with three aphasic patients.
