Extending the Considering Work Model to Persons with Aphasia

Purpose: The purpose of this article is to show how the client-focused considering work model (CFCWM) can be adapted to persons with aphasia as a way to provide a framework for rehabilitation counselors to use when helping persons with aphasia assess their readiness to work.

Method: This article first provides a basic overview of aphasia and the communication challenges that persons with aphasia experience. We then provide a review the CFCWM as well as a rationale for extending it to persons with aphasia. Finally, we present a case study that walks through the barriers and facilitators to returning to work for persons with aphasia, framed within the CFCWM.

Results: Extending the CFCWM to persons with aphasia provides much needed guidelines for professionals working with this population, creates opportunities for education among stakeholders, and provides a theoretical foundation for needed research aimed at understanding and better addressing the vocational needs of persons with aphasia.

Conclusions: This article shows how the CFCWM can be extended to the population of persons with aphasia and highlights how vocational counselors and speech-language pathologists can work together to better serve this population.
