Conversation analysis as a method for evaluating progress in aphasia: A case report
Journal of Communication Disorders
The gains made by a woman with Broca’s aphasia as documented by traditional measures were paralleled by changes in conversation, including increased verbal output and efficiency, and changes in conversation repair patterns. Her conversational partner decreased her verbal output, as predicted. The progress documented with conversational discourse analysis was not observable from other test measures. Clinical and theoretical implications are discussed.
