Abstract

This study examined the effects of age, culture, and elicitation method on the narratives
of African American adolescents and emerging adults with closed head inj uries (CHI).
Forty subjects including 20 individuals with CHI (ten adolescents and ten emerging
adults) and 20 normal controls were administered three narrative tasks. The narrative
tasks included: 1) a story re-telling task, 2) a story generation task elicited with a picture,
and 3) a story generation task elicited with a comic strip. A multi- level analysis was
utilized to analyze the data at three levels: sentence production, intersential cohesive
adequacy, and story episode structure.
