Applying Aphasia-Friendly Principles to Experience Sampling Method Mobile App Development
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, people with aphasia were asked to compare three apps of varied origin and rate them on aphasia-friendly principles. The purpose of each app is to allow people with aphasia to answer customized questions, which will later be reviewed with a clinician to supplement therapeutic conversations. The first app, entitled FlowAphasia, is a commission based private app that was created for research purposes by the 2nd author and app collaborator, designed to adhere to aphasia-friendly principals. The second app, entitled mEMA, is a generic Experience Sampling Method app off the Apple Store, not designed to be aphasia friendly. The last app, entitled Aphasia-Speaks, was developed for this research project by the first researcher, and is designed to adhere to aphasia-friendly principles.
