  • Self-determination model, Life Participation Approach to Aphasia, and WHO's International Classification of Functioning are important concepts in developing functional goals with meaningful outcomes for people in rehabilitation after stroke. Individuals with aphasia after stroke can have a difficult time expressing their needs and preferences regarding rehabilitation, an important aspect of these models. The Life Interests and Values (LIV) Card Sort designed for people with aphasia to communicate information important for treatment planning. Individuals with aphasia secondary to stroke can have co-occurring cognitive deficits that can interfere with ability to perform some tasks. This study investigated the relationship between five individuals' cognitive-linguistic profiles and ability to complete the LIV Card Sort (measured with behavioral variables like number of clinician cues). Results of the study suggest that there is a relationship between cognitive-linguistic profile and behavioral variables, yet these deficits do not seem to limit any person from using the Cards.
