Abstract

Research in chronic aphasia typically incorporates Quality of Life measures to determine functional outcomes of treatment. This single subject study utilizes the Experience Sampling Method (ESM) in which the 75 year old, one year post CVA subject responds to 4-5 questions on a Palm Tungsten Personal Data Assistant (PDA) at the end of each activity during an intensive treatment program. Comparison of responses to the 10 treatment activities suggests that responses regarding the perception of communication and stress were the most negative, but, that less structured activities were more stressful than those communicatively focused. Theoretical and clinical findings will be discussed.
