Abstract

To quantify narrative discourse ability, clinicians frequently ask individuals to describe pictures and then analyze the resulting language samples for within and/or between sentence processes. For this study, we wanted to determine if color line drawings versus black and white line drawings impacted the quality and quantity of narrative discourse samples. Eighteen healthy adults aged 42.1 to 58.8 described single and sequential pictures in two sessions: a color session and black and white session, randomized and counterbalanced. Both word count and percentage main events relayed were affected by the color condition. Detailed results and clinical implications will be discussed.
