Abstract

Three persons with aphasia were asked to keep a daily diary for one year. The aim of this
endeavor was to learn about daily activity from the perspective of the person with aphasia
and to provide a new outlet for communication with therapists and volunteers. Content
analysis of diary writings included frequency of activity, social relationships, statements
concerning enjoyment and activity planning. Each participant chose computer use as an
activity of interest. The analysis will describe similarities and differences as they pursue
that activity. This poster session will describe clinical procedures and benefits of diary
keeping for persons with aphasia.
