Abstract

The purpose of the research was to determine what types of images best support the auditory comprehension of people with aphasia when listening to stories. Twenty-one people with chronic aphasia listened to four stories, one in each of four conditions (e.g., Isolated Photographs, High Context Drawings with embedded Photographs, High Context Photographs, and No Visuographic Support). The researchers measured auditory comprehension by determining participants’ accuracy in responding to 15 multiple choice questions related to each story. Results showed no significant differences in accuracy across the four visual graphic conditions. Clinical implications and future research are discussed.
