The informed consent of participants is ethically and legally required for most clinical researches. However, standardized models for the informed consent are not appropriate for people with aphasia. This fact justifies why people with aphasia are often excluded from research. This paper aims to discuss the limitations related to obtained informed consent from people with aphasia and suggest strategies and facilitated techniques in order to include this group of people in clinical research. The challenge to include people with aphasia in research should be taken up in order to promote accessibility, while continuing to respect the autonomy and the exercise of decision making for these patients.
