1. Why Do We Care About Functional Goal Setting/Documentation?

This chapter uses the life participation philosophy as the foundation to think about how and what we include when writing goals and documenting patient care. Information about client perspectives will be included.

2. The Holistic Choices We Have to Measure the Impact of Therapy

Because of the person-centered care movement, we have a broadened definition of the ways therapy can impact someone’s life. This chapter uses clinical examples to demonstrate the many factors we can measure for meaningful goal setting, using the Living with Aphasia: Framework for Outcome Measurement (A-FROM) as a foundation.

3. More Tools for Setting Meaningful Goals

As clinical speech-language pathologists, we have several frameworks and tools to help us set goals that reflect meaningful change for the individual. Three favorite ready-to-use tools will be shared, with client examples.
