This study, exploring the effects of an eight-week IADL group for people living with aphasia, identified statistically significant improvements in physical and communication skills and overall quality of life, as measured by the Stroke and Aphasia Quality of Life Scale and Community Integration Questionnaire. Positive trends were noted in home integration, social activities, and community integration. This research supports the unique value of OT and occupation-based groups for people with aphasia.
