Primary Objective: Conversation Analysis was employed to examine the type, context and success of communication strategies used by a person who has suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) during a conversation with a key conversation partner. Methods and procedure: A single case study approach was taken which involved video recording an adult with TBI having a 30 minute conversation with a key conversation partner. The recording was transcribed and analysed according to Conversation Analysis principles. Results: The TBI client demonstrated a variety of communication strategies in a number of situations which aided interactions. Results indicate that the type of strategies used depended on the context of the conversation and the success of the strategies relied greatly on the other participant. Strategies such as gesture and first letter cueing were evidenced. Conclusion: Interactions were aided by the use of communication strategies. The strategies' success relied greatly on the other participant supporting the claim that conversation is collaborative. Some strategies were used more than others and some accomplished more than others. Training of potential communication partners may improve the TBI client's daily interactions.
