Introduction:

 Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) is a neurodegenerative dementia characterized by language impairments that appear gradually and worsen over time; eventually, other cognitive and behavioral functions become impacted as well (Gorno-Tempini et al., 2011; Mesulam, 1982). Though there are no cures for PPA available, speech-language pathologists can play a critical role in the management of the disease (Khayum et al., 2012; Rogalski & Khayum, 2018). This resource is designed to introduce clinicians to a variety of treatment approaches that may be considered when working with clients with PPA.
