Presentation Notes

Presented at American Occupational Therapy Association, INSPIRE Conference; April 1, 2022; San Antonio, Texas.


Over the course of 5 years, a total of 31 people with aphasia (PWA) participated in an Intensive Comprehensive Aphasia Program (ICAP), which included 4 hours of OT a week. Using the Activity Card Sort, this research study examined what goals PWA chose to address. Of 151 goals, PWA most frequently chose high demand leisure (27%) and instrumental (27%) activities. This provides support for OT in ICAPs to address these occupations affected by stroke. Primary Author and Speaker: Migena Guhacaj Additional Authors and Speakers: Mary Hildebrand
