During and after the war, however, several aphasia rehabilitation programmes were developed, especially in Germany (Franz, 1924; Goldstein, 1942; Isserlin, 1929) but also in other parts of Europe (Poppelreuter, 20 Sarno 1915), the United States (Franz, 1924; Frazier & Ingham, 1920; Nielsen, 1936), and the UK (Butfield & Zangwill, 1946; Head, 1926). These programmes were designed for military personnel with aphasia secondary to head injuries, which were usually gunshot wounds, incurred in combat.

In general, insurers are less restrictive in the reimbursement of assessments than treatment.
