Abstract

The information-processing demands of therapy tasks trigger language/cognitive processing work through which the goals of language therapy are achieved. It has been suggested that the way tasks are modulated, and consistency in the application of therapy tasks could be critical aspects in the process of delivering efficient and effective therapy. This paper will present data from a qualitative study drawn from forty-one sessions of language therapy in day-to-day practice. It will examine interactional issues facing therapists and people with aphasia in the modulation and consistent enactment of therapy tasks. It will also discuss how notions of ‘modulation’ and ‘consistency’ may be usefully distinguished.
