I am interested in research in aphasia which has potential impact on the field of practice of aphasia rehabilitation. This includes methods in speech-language therapy for evaluating aphasia and ints consequences for the individual as well as methods of training and rehabilitation targeting communication or broader psychosocial issues.
My research is presented in the Faculty of Humanities' publication Impact of humanities research: 24 cases.
Primary fields of research
- Rehabilitation of aphasia
- Supported Conversation for People with Aphasia as a method of communication partner training
- Psykosocial approaches to aphasia (community and work reintegration)
- Assessment of aphasia and its consequences in speech-language therapy
- Quantitative and qualitative analysis of connected speech production in aphasia
My current research is on methods of training communication partners of people with aphasia, which target significant others or health care professionals: How may these methods be implemented in clinical field of practice, what are the appropriate outcome measures and how may current training methods be refined or improved. See network collaboration on Supporting communicative participation of individuals with aphasia.
Implementation of supported conversation in the Department of Neurology, RIgshospitalet-Glostrup. The department'sl Communication Team received the Gerry Cormier Communicative Access Award in September 2017 for reducing communicative barriers for hospitalized patients with aphasia.
