Abstract

Forty-eight young adults recorded instructions on use of a universal remote control for a young partner, an older partner, a hearing-impaired older partner, and a cognitively-impaired older partner. Quantitative and qualitative language sample analyses were used. There were no significant differences in linguistic measures based on hypothetical partner age or deficit. Perceptions of partner’s ability to learn, comprehension, and familiarity with technology were influenced by age/deficit attributes. Ratings of belief that tape-recorded instructions could help were correlated with a variety of linguistic measures. Implications for current aphasia intervention approaches (e.g., life participation, partner training) will be discussed.
