          Abstract

          We present the design of a system for Aphasics that assist them in storytelling. Storytelling, in the sense of being able to relate recent and past experiences to relevant others, is considered to be crucial for the quality of life and psychological wellbeing of most people. The storytelling support system that we propose is primarily intended to be used by Aphasics in their postrehabilitation period. Our focus is on the creation of daily stories with the help of passively captured materials, hence emphasizing the need for fairly effortless interaction from the side of the end user. End-user requirements gathering was especially difficult in this project, because of the verbal limitations in our user group. Many requirements for the system were hence decided through consulting proxies of the Aphasics, such as their caregivers. The preliminary feedbacks on our design provide interesting insights for the design of a more complete storytelling system for Aphasics. We also discuss some interesting challenges from a technological and methodological point of view that arose in the course of the design.

            Aphasia Talks: photography as a means of communication, self-expression, and empowerment in persons with aphasia.

            Through collaboration between Archeworks, Inc., an alternative design program, and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, items and services designed to improve the lives of persons with stroke were developed. After examining the issues related to stroke from a design perspective, a photography class called Aphasia Talks was developed to facilitate self-expression in persons with aphasia with the goals of reintegration, socialization, recreation, education, and strengthening. A model based on design with, rather than for, persons with stroke was employed to develop the class and a corresponding website (AphasiaTalks.org), which includes photographs and audio relating to the photographs. In addition, the redesign of a digital camera that could be used by persons with limited hand mobility as a communication and recreation tool was begun. By encouraging self-expression and empowering class participants, the class was refined to be used for research purposes to gain further insight into the problems faced by persons living with stroke.
