[en] Aims: This single-case study assess the emotional expression in a patient affected with Steinert disease in order to better analyze the patient's therapeutical needs as well as widen our perspective on the therapeutical means in speech therapy.
Methods: A neutral text was read by the patient and a comedian, with five different emotions (joy, anger, fear, sadness and neutral). A group of judges identified the emotions by categorical choice and graded their intensity on a 4-point scale. The samples included three modes: visual, audio and audio-visual.
Results: Compared to the comedian, the patient’s expression of emotion is less well perceived in the visual mode (65%>51%, (p=0.009)). In the gradation of intensity, there is a better correlation for the comedian (0.583>0.325, p<0.001) than for the patient.
Conclusion: The results suggests that the emotions expressed by the patient are less well identified, especially through the visual channel, which confirms the influence of the patient’s disease on the quality of his emotional expressions. In addition, the fact that the patient's expressions are less well transmitted through the facial channel leads the author to consider a therapy focused not only on vocal capacities but also on facial mimicry.
