Abstract

African American adults' low rate of service utilization is unacceptable because of their high risk for acquired communication disorders. The purpose of the present study was to assess the knowledge, beliefs, and attitudes regarding communication disorders in a sample of community-dwelling African American adults. This focus group study provides informant-based insights that can inform the design of clinical services that resonate with the preferences of this population. Culturally resonant services may increase utilization and lead to more favorable outcomes for African American adults living with acquired disorders of communication.
