Abstract

This study documents the case of a professor with aphasia who resumed teaching through
a combination of voice-output technology and the “Key Word Teaching” technique.
Student participants attended two class sessions – one utilizing voice-output technology
alone and the other combining voice-output with the Key Word Teaching technique. In
the Combined condition, students rated the professor and the presentation more positively
on dependent measures related to rate, comfort, understandability, and willingness to
participate. In a ranking task, all students preferred the Combined teaching approach. The
results are discussed in the context of augmentative and alternative communication and
vocational outcomes in aphasia.
