This paper reports on investigation of the application of the principles of conversation analysis to the non-verbal interaction of an aphasic speaker who has minimal verbal output but moderately well preserved comprehension. The results show that detailed analysis of interaction can highlight the clients abilities as well as clarifying the strategies employed by the non-dysphasic communicative partner, which facilitate interaction. The results were used to advise staff who cared for the client in a residential home on how to achieve positive and successful communication.
