Abstract

An investigation of treatment outcomes was conducted to examine the effects of
Supported Communication Intervention on conversational symmetry and partner training.
Supported Communication Intervention, which combines augmentative and alternative
communication with partner training, focuses on reducing the limitations associated with
communication activities and increasing the participation of individuals with moderate to
severe aphasia in social interaction. Conversational symmetry (the number and duration
of conversational turns generated by each participant), and the effects of partner training
(the ratio of facilitory-to-nonfacilitory behaviors exhibited by the non-aphasic partner),
were both measured during conversational probes obtained before treatment, over the
course of treatment, and 3 months after treatment had ended.
