Keelor, Jennifer Lee and Dietz, Aimee and Griffith, Julie and Hicks, Jessica and Reinstatler, Anna (2011) People with Aphasia: Knowledge of Restorative and Supported Reading Techniques. [Clinical Aphasiology Paper]
Restorative and supported reading interventions are available for people with aphasia (PWA). However, the extent to which this population accesses these resources is undocumented. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to explore the reading practices of PWA and discover how PWA developed strategies to navigate written material. The researchers used a phenomenological qualitative approach. They conducted 16 in-depth semi-structured interviews with PWA and their caregivers. These interviews revealed the types of reading materials accessed by PWA, reading strategies employed, barriers to reading, issues regarding reading comprehension and the use of reading therapy delivery models.
