Cherney, Leora R.; Halper, Anita S.; Kaye, Rosalind C.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v44 n4 p493-501 Jul-Aug 2011
This study presents results of post-treatment interviews following computer-based script training for persons with chronic aphasia. Each of the 23 participants received 9 weeks of AphasiaScripts training. Post-treatment interviews were conducted with the person with aphasia and/or a significant other person. The 23 interviews yielded 584 coded comments that were categorized into ten themes. Five of the themes related to the communication behaviors of the participant, whereas the other five related to the computer program and study procedures. Examples of each theme are presented. The themes provide qualitative evidence of change and generalization, supporting the use of this computer-based script training program. Learning outcomes: The reader will be able to describe (1) a computer program developed for training scripts for individuals with aphasia, and (2) Summarize themes derived from post-treatment interviews regarding changes in communication after computer-based script training. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
