Abstract

This paper presents factors that need to be taken into account when developing visual resources to support conversation between individuals with aphasia and their conversation partners. The authors will describe the evolution of a pictographic system based on this understanding and discuss issues such as the deliberate choice of pictographs over photographs and the specific way in which key words are used as part of the visual presentation. Along with illustrative examples, key elements of the required skill set will be identified and practical applications of the pictographic system for aphasia research and enhancing communicative access to healthcare will be discussed.
