  • The best of both worlds: Clinical implications of classical and
           qualitative paradigms in aphasiology
    • Authors: Brent E. Archer, Ramona G. Olvera
      Abstract: This article explores two theoretical perspectives on aphasia. The first tradition we consider could be labeled ‘classical aphasiology’. Several beliefs run through studies published within this paradigm. Our field’s history as a medical specialty committed to etic modes of understanding fosters a construal of aphasia as an impairment caused by brain injury. Since researchers are informed by neuropsycholinguistic theories of linguistics, they tend to view the person diagnosed with communication disability as an individual processor of language. An early association with positivism fostered the assumption that experiments in carefully controlled environments, which try to negate the effect of contextual variables as much as possible, can generate insights about how best to view and remediate adult neurogenic language disorders. Our second area of focus here is a newer approach developed over the last 25 years or so. Fields such as anthropology (Goodwin, 2004), ethnography (Simmons-Mackie and Damico, 1999a) for an overview), phenomenology (Fourie and Murphy, 2011), conversation analysis (Damico, Oelschlaeger, and Simmons-Mackie, 1999), grounded theory (Andersson and Fridlund, 2002; Hersh 2001) and systemic functional linguistics (Armstrong and Mortensen, 2006) are all examples of disciplines that have provided the lenses and other tools used by workers in what we will call ‘qualitative aphasiology’. A number of beliefs guide qualitative investigations of aphasia. An emic stance, as articulated by anthropologists and similar analysts, compels writers to describe aphasia in terms of the interpretations regarded as meaningful by people and families living with aphasia producing valuable, holistic understandings of this disorder. Sociolinguistic models of communication ensure that researchers conceive of language as a system for co-constructing social reality. A situated approach to understanding meaning-making necessitates a conceptualization of human beings as interactants whose behavior helps to shape, and is in turn shaped by, the contextual variables relevant in everyday life. Our analysis will elucidate some consequences of these two sets of beliefs. In particular, we demonstrate how epistemological orientation (speech pathology as an etic, medical enterprise vs. speech pathology as an emic, anthropological enterprise) impacts the characterization of aphasia itself and how ideas about the appropriate unit of analysis (individual processors vs. social builders) are linked to varying working definitions of language.

  • Everyday communication in adolescents after acquired brain injuries – A
           comparative study of self-ratings and parent evaluations using the CETI
    • Authors: Åsa Fyrberg, Karin Strid, Elisabeth Ahlsén, Gunilla Thunberg
      Abstract: Communication participation in adolescents with acquired brain injuries (ABI) has received limited attention. The aim of the present study was to investigate the views of the adolescents themselves (N = 8), in comparison to parent evaluations (N = 11) of daily communication, using the Communicative Effectiveness Index in combination with individual interviews. Two frameworks for analyses, Activity based Communication Analyses and the distributed cognition approach, identified three main areas of interest: Situations where communication difficulties occur, Coping behaviours used by participants to manage communication difficulties, and, Causes of the communication difficulties. An overall high agreement between the adolescent and parent assessments was shown. However, complex communicative situations more frequently received lower scores in the parent ratings. The results of the study point to the usability of a systematic comparison of the shared points of views on communication after ABI in adolescence, to increase knowledge about the participation perspective in real life communication.

  • Achieving a common understanding of a person with aphasia’s
           self-assessments of progress in speech and communication
    • Authors: Elisabeth Muth Andersen, Jytte Isaksen
      Abstract: This article demonstrates how a person with aphasia (PWA) and a speech and language therapist (SLT) collaboratively arrive at a common understanding of the PWAs assessments of his progress in speech and communication. This is done as part of a mandatory outcome evaluation of aphasia therapy. Interactional adaptive strategies known from Supported Conversation for Adults with Aphasia (SCA) are used. By making use of conversation analysis we analyse an assessment sequence initiated with an open question and a sequence initiated with several closed questions and pen and paper. The analyses confirm that adaptive strategies may lead to communication characterized by less interactional trouble, i.e. ‘repair’. The analyses also point at how question formatting and sequential organization may be used to guide, model and transform the PWA’s answers. Building on previous research as well as participants’ displayed understandings in the interaction we discuss perspectives of using SCA strategies in institutional interaction involving PWA.

  • SLT styles and indications of parent adherence in the clinical encounter
           regarding home training activities for children with speech/ language
    • Authors: Dorthe Hansen, Catherine E. Brouwer
      Abstract: Homework is often the parents’ primary task when they are involved in SLT intervention for their child with speech/language disorders. However, little work has been done to examine real-life clinical encounters between parents and SLTs regarding home training activities. This study, employing Conversation Analysis (CA), focuses on whether and how SLTs and parents interactionally establish agreement on the training activities to be performed at home with the child. Video recordings of clinical encounters between five different Danish SLTs and parents of children with speech/ language disorders were analysed. Analyses revealed what seem to be two different interactional styles with regard to the ways parents participated in the talk, and each style exhibited specific interactional features. These findings contribute to an understanding of SLTs’ methods for putting forward recommendations and for providing opportunities for the parents to show their understanding and acceptance of the recommendations and their willingness to take future actions.

  • Functions of sequential placement: Conversational co-construction of a
           single nonverbal contribution
    • Authors: Tobias A. Kroll, Ben Rutter, Judith D. Oxley
      Abstract: This study examines how a nearly nonverbal, prelingually deaf young man and his speech-language clinician co-construct a conversation using the client’s nonconventional contributions. It is shown how conversation is made possible through variations in the sequential placement of a single contribution by the client, a nasal sound construed as serving four distinct conversational functions: as a continuer; as a token of turn-constructional and topical completion; as an incomprehension token and signal for lack of verbal resources; and as a comprehension token. These functions are based on variations the sequential placement of the nasal and the differential treatment it receives by the interlocutors as a consequence. Results indicate that unconventional conversational contributions may be untypical in their form but typical in their function; that they may have subtly different functions when compared to their conventional cognates; or that they may have functions not found in typical talk.

  • The use of pictures for interactional purposes and the grammar of social
    • Authors: Gitte Rasmussen
      Abstract: This conversation analytic study investigates the introduction of pictures in sequence initial position in Atypical Interaction across institutional and private settings. The pictures share two main features; they are paper-based and they can be manipulated by hand. Danish clients (from different populations) and their relatives, or speech and language pathologists, combine them in initial position systematically with talk, amongst other resources, in three different ways. The paper studies how their use becomes interwoven with talk, and the grammar of language, in order to be understandable as resources for interaction. Co-participants orient towards this, which, as is suggested, needs to be put in the foreground in order to nuance the potential of artefacts not only for atypical interaction, but possibly in typical interaction too. Strands of research in both areas have focused on (the potential of) artifacts as resources for communication and interaction.
