Communication strategies used by 'good' versus 'poor' speaking partners of individuals with aphasia
Simmons-Mackie, Nina and Kagan, Aura
Communication strategies used by 'good' versus 'poor' speaking partners of individuals with aphasia. Aphasiology, 13(9-11), 1999, pages 807-820.
Ten nonaphasic volunteers and 10 individuals with aphasia were assigned to dyads and videotaped in conversation. Judges ranked each volunteer in the videotaped conversations from 'best' to 'worst' communication partner. The two best and two worst interactions were submitted to detailed analysis using Conversation Analysis (CA) methodology. Discourse devices and resources employed by speaking partners in the dyads were identified. Results abstracted from the CA were compared to contrast discourse characteristics between the high ranked and low ranked partners. Specific strategies identified and implications for aphasia intervention are discussed.
