Aphasia is an acquired loss or impairment of the language system that can occur after stroke. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can provide an option for the delivery of intensive aphasia rehabilitation but the usersâ views (i.e. people with aphasia) must be considered. There is no consensus measure of self-reported feedback in ICT-delivered aphasia rehabilitation and existing ICT usability questionnaires do not present questions in an accessible format for people with aphasia. This research employed a co-design process in which a group of adults with aphasia and the researchers collaborated in design workshops. The final product is an online feedback questionnaire that is accessible for people with aphasia. It provides relevant and meaningful self-reported feedback on participant engagement in ICT-delivered aphasia rehabilitation. This feedback is important when planning and monitoring aphasia rehabilitation.
