Abstract

The Rehabilitation Treatment Specification System (RTSS) provides a framework to identify specific components of treatments developed within various rehabilitation disciplines (eg, physical, occupational, or speech-language therapy). Furthermore, this framework offers the opportunity to identify the target and active ingredients of a therapy approach as well as the mechanism of action by which it is hypothesized to effect change in abilities or functions. In this article, we apply the RTSS framework to the characterization of a sample of treatments for aphasia that are based on cognitive-linguistic models of language processing. Our discussion of these applications centers on the benefits of this classification system and additional criteria to consider when evaluating cognitive-linguistic treatments for aphasia.
