SIG 2 Perspectives Vol. 22, No. 1, April 2012

This issue of Perspectives is about self-determination in aphasia rehabilitation. Self-Determination Theory (SDT) is a framework for explaining how social and cultural factors can either facilitate or undermine people’s motivation, well-being, and performance. The SDT framework has obvious implications for rehabilitation and for adjusting to life with aphasia. Authors discuss this rationale, along with a variety of useful strategies for supporting self-determination in people with aphasia (PWA).

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe the purpose of the LIV cards and how they may be used in assessment and treatment of individuals with aphasia

  • describe the health-care professionals’ role in facilitating client autonomy and involvement in goal development and treatment planning
  • describe the role of community in recovery from aphasia and how aphasia groups can support autonomy, competence, and relatedness in individuals with aphasia
