Abstract

This presentation demonstrates an application of Living with Aphasia: Framework for Outcome Measurement (A-FROM) (Kagan, et al. in press) to the analysis of evidence for social approaches to aphasia. A-FROM is a conceptual framework adapted from the World Health Organization International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) (WHO, 2001). A-FROM provides a user-friendly graphic to guide research and outcome measurement and helps address the lack of an integrated approach across diverse aphasia interventions. Using examples from a literature review on social approaches, this method of organizing evidence will be described.
