Protocole de thérapie écosystémique de la communication du couple aphasique à partir du PTECCA

Abstract : Remediation approaches in speech therapy are increasingly moving towards ecological practices in rehabilitation techniques in relation to the patient and his environment. Communication restrictions induced by aphasia affect both the patient and his partner, hereby resulting in a shared handicap and in a decreased quality of life. This case study seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of an ecosystemic rehabilitation of communication with three dyads aphasic patient-spouse. Based on the assessment tool “Protocole Toulousain d’Evaluation de la Communication du Couple Aphasique” (PTECCA, Iché et al., 2007), it also aims at evaluating its impact on the quality of life using the measurement scale C-10. The therapy takes place over six sessions of approximately one hour, and consists in four phases: information, awareness, specific training and generalization of learning. The study results indicate that the PTECCA liberates rehabilitative axes, and that although this protocol is in fact applicable, it would however benefit from further improvements. Furthermore, a favorable communicative behavior appeared after the therapy was completed. Nevertheless, for the sake of certainty, a validation study should be conducted to conclude definitively on the effectiveness of the therapy.
