The Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences (ANCDS), the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), its Special Interest Division 2 (SID-2: Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders) and the Veterans Administration (VA) collaborated to establish evidence-based practice guidelines for diagnosing and treating individuals with dementia of the Alzheimer type (DAT). A committee was formed to review the literature and evaluate the evidence for effects of direct and indirect interventions on the communicative functioning of individuals with DAT. In this clinical report are a description and evaluation of the evidence for using simulated presence therapy (SimPres), using personal memories for enhancing well-being, for persons with DAT. **********
