Sammanfattning: The effect of aphasia varies across patients and consequently their rehabilitation needs may differ. Access to participation in today’s information society requires good reading skills and this should be considered in a patient's rehabilitation plan. However, there are currently no guidelines available regarding the treatment of acquired reading impairments following stroke. The national guidelines for stroke rehabilitation states that speech and language intervention should be given when necessary and requested. There are currently no national guidelines for aphasia treatment that target specific language functions. The current study aims to gather and review the evidence of reading interventions for people with aphasia. A systematic search was made in medical databases to gather relevant studies. A quality review was conducted for the 19 studies found and information about the different methods used for therapy was gathered. This was followed by an evidence evaluation of each method. Although most studies demonstrated positive results, only 3 out of 13 methods were found to have a moderate to high evidence base. The majority of the methods were supported by single-case studies or lacked in quality, making it difficult to draw any conclusion about whether those methods are suitable to use in the clinic. This result also reflects the focus of the evidence grading system (GRADE) on study design and questions arose of its suitability for this type of aphasia research.
