General Overview

Cafeteria
This video is of a 50-year-old woman with Broca’s aphasia and apraxia of speech having a conversation with a speech-language pathologist in a (noisy) hospital cafeteria. Another person is present but not visible in the video (an occupational therapist known to the person with aphasia). The purpose of the recording was to collect a sample of conversation in an authentic setting for the person with aphasia as part of a research project investigating compensatory strategies in aphasia.

Home
This video is of a 50-year-old woman with Broca’s aphasia and apraxia of speech having a conversation with a close friend. The context is the person with aphasia’s apartment (dining area and kitchen). The friend’s child is also present. The purpose of the recording was to collect a sample of conversation in an authentic setting for the person with aphasia as part of a research project investigating compensatory strategies in aphasia.

PICA
This video shows a speech-language pathologist administering the Porch Index of Communicative Ability to a 50-year-old woman with Broca’s aphasia and apraxia of speech. The setting is a hospital speech-language pathology department clinic room. The purpose of the recording was to observe the performance of this person in a ‘test’ situation as compared to natural conversation (as seen in the “Home” and “Cafeteria” videos).
