Abstract

To fully describe the impact of aphasia on one’s disablement experience, patient-reported indices of communicative functioning and communication-related distress must be considered. However, such measures are rarely employed in clinical practice (Simmons-Mackie, Threats, & Kagan, 2005) or in studies of aphasia treatment (Holland & Thompson, 1998). In this study, regression analyses were used to examine whether 3 month SPICA, 55-item RTT, and BDAE Severity Rating scores accurately predicted 12 month measures of patient-reported communication difficulty and distress. The findings revealed that neither the SPICA nor the 55-item RTT predicted patient-reported outcomes at 12 months.
