Bilingualism questionnaires are important intake instruments to develop clinically useful individual bilingualism histories on dual-language users. Insights from these questionnaires enhance diagnostic difference-versus-disorder determinations and therapeutic suitability. The relevance of bilingualism questionnaires, often stressed in the case of pediatric bilingual cases, has received minimal attention in aphasia rehabilitation with bilinguals. This article discusses the development and implementation of systematic bilingualism questionnaires to gather pre-morbid experiential insights on bilinguals with critical value in the design of personalized, social aphasia intervention that would maximize plausible linguistic, cultural, and cognitive interactions affecting language recovery.
