Life Participation Approach to Aphasia

The Life Participation Approach to Aphasia Project Group was comprised of a group of clinicians and researchers who had similar views regarding the importance of re-engagement in life. The statement of values were not meant to be prescriptive, but rather to provide ideas for discussion. This is a link to the original article published in the ASHA Leader in 2000. The statement of values was reprinted in Language Intervention Strategies in Aphasia and Related Neurogenic Communication Disorders (Chapey, R. (Ed.). (2008) Baltimore, MD: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.).

Current Research Activity

Research initiatives at the Aphasia Institute focus on observing what happens within on-site programs, exploring critical questions about the aphasia experience, and testing ideas on how to better deliver care and support.


CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECT: 

“SCA-Acute” – Family Input for an Aphasia Resource: 

The Aphasia Institute is working with family members of patients/clients with stroke+aphasia – to learn about what’s needed and what works, when hospital acute stroke care teams give information and support to people with aphasia and their families. 

       (“Acute stroke care” refers to the first hospital where the patient/client received care after their stroke.) 

  • As a family member of a person with stroke+aphasia, what was your experience from the first hospital that gave stroke care, around information+support for aphasia?

  • As a health care professional, do you know family members who may like to make their input heard, as we develop a resource for future families of patients with stroke+aphasia?
