Using Talking Mats to support communication in persons with Huntington's Disease (short summary)

Using
Talking Mats
 
to
support
communication

The authors investigated the use of Talking Mats (TM) in supporting the communication of five people with advanced Huntington’s Disease (HD). They compared unstructured and structured interactions and the used of TM when the same topics were discussed.

It was found that for all of the participants communicative effectiveness was increased by the use of TM.

The authors conclude that the use of TM could increase participation in life-planning for people with HD but is dependent on good support from trained communication partners.
