The recovery of language expression ability is not only improved with the recovery of stroke, but mainly depends on speech training. Language training is a special training method, and its effect depends on the degree of language disorders, the patient’s age, the time from onset to treatment, and the patient’s initiative for treatment.

Training must start with pronunciation, practicing simple conversations, singing familiar songs, gradually increasing vocabulary and language scope, and training patients to speak daily life expressions, objects, and familiar organs. Examples include eating, sleeping, washing your face, tables, chairs, eyes, ears, noses, etc. After patients can pronounce words, they should practice speaking repeatedly and actively communicate with others, exercising their speaking abilities without fearing laughter.

Connecting training involves listening to the first half of a sentence and then saying the second half. Repetition training requires patients to repeat words, phrases, or sentences that others have said, gradually becoming longer and more complex. Training patients to read text from cards, from simple to complex, helps improve reading and writing abilities.

In addition, training of the articulatory apparatus is also an effective method for stroke patients with language impairment. Letting patients make “ah” sounds and blowing out candles or paper to exercise lip muscles, because aphasic patients’ labial sounds are easiest to recover.

Clinically, listening and speech pointing training is often used to improve patients’ language ability, letting patients execute orders, point out pictures or words related to the order, and let them pronounce and explain.
Training of language function is a difficult and complex exercise process. Therefore, patients need patience and perseverance, repeated practice, and their language ability can be restored.
