Abstract

Preliminary data is presented from a study in progress investigating whether speech-language pathology (SLP) intervention for a specific cognitive deficit (attention) will facilitate improvement of functional communication skills (conversational discourse) for individuals with closed head injury (CHI) at an acute rehabilitation phase. A randomized design was used to create treatment and control groups. Results from one individual are analyzed utilizing two procedures to determine which may be more useful in characterizing conversational ability of individuals in this population. The results will assist in research procedures for the remaining data. This study may lead to treatment recommendations for individuals with CHI.
