Abstract: This paper presents a model of involvement for people with aphasia, a communication problem commonly experienced after a stroke. The researchers set up an advisory group for people with aphasia and their carers. The group was involved at every stage of a project to assess the cost-effectiveness of computer-based treatment for aphasia. The researchers describe the approaches they used to enable people with communication difficulties to contribute meaningfully to the research. These included careful preparation for structured meetings and the use of creative methods of exchanging ideas.
