Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability in India, and the prevalence of this disorder shows a steep rise in the recent decades. Among the many consequences of stroke, the loss of the ability to use language – i.e., aphasia – is a major detriment to the quality of life of the affected individuals. In the recent past, the rise of model-driven treatment approaches has shown promising effects in persons with aphasia. Two such techniques to enhance naming are the Semantic Feature Analysis and Phonological Component Analysis techniques. These two techniques focus on entirely different constructs in language. The first one focuses on the semantic or conceptual training, whereas, the second focuses on the sound-based training in patients with naming difficulties after stroke-aphasia. Despite the availability of such effective techniques, a major constraint is the availability of trained personnel to provide such training to the needy persons who reside far from the clinical facilities. Present day technological advances may fill this lacuna.
