Abstract

Developing functional communication is the goal of Speech-Language rehabilitation treatment of persons with aphasia. The Communication Analysis System (CAS) uses electronic and behavioral technologies to help Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) in this effort. Inexpensive personal computer technology (an Apple with a numeric keypad and a clock) is the hardware for the system. The CAS uses an advanced behavioral measurement technology to provide convenient, objective, ratio-quality quantitative measures of client and clinician behaviors. Data displays designed for fast interpretation allow the clinician to analyze rapidly the extent to which the treatment was implemented as planned and its effects on client communicative behavior. Cost-effective treatments can thus be maximized.
