Abstract

Multiethnic aphasia caseloads in post-stroke services are estimated to grow extensively. The convergence of a larger prevalence of chronic neurogenic complications in a rapidly aging world population with the exponential growth of global ethno-racial diversity is estimated to considerably expand ethno-geriatric caseloads in neurorehabilitation services worldwide (Cummings-Vaughn, 2017; Kristiansen et al., 2016; Prince et al., 2015). A global demographic transition into larger multiethnic older groups, while having a tremendous impact on local social and healthcare services in many world regions, will particularly require increased research and workforce to meet the clinical demands of burgeoning multiethnic adult groups in post-stroke caseloads (Centeno, 2017; Centeno & Harris, in press; Dwolatzky et al., 2017; Yeo et al., 2017).
