This study examines relationships among self-perception of social support, communication, and social participation in PWA and people without aphasia (PWOA) poststroke. Results show that social support for PWA mitigates the negative impact of communication deficits on social participation. For PWOA, support facilitates social participation to a lesser degree. This indicates that OT practitioners should consider PWA’s social supports to facilitate reintegration into community living.
