home instructions, communication problems, caregivers


Broen and Westman (1990) defined Home Instructions as the combination of oneon-one intervention with a speech and language pathologist and parent-implemented activities. In the Philippines, there are no published studies regarding home instructions, however, its importance is in the role of providing supplement therapy to the different service delivery modes available to ensure continuation of training at home. This study aims to determine the perspectives of seven caregivers of children with speech, language, and communication problems in De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences (DLSMHSI) Speech Clinic about the facilitators and barriers in home instruction implementation through a semi-structured interview. A phenomenological qualitative research design was utilized as the study aims to describe, understand, and determine the perspective of caregivers regarding the different facilitators and barriers that they have experienced when conducting home instructions. After the interview, all data gathered were then analyzed using an Inductive Thematic Analysis approach as it seeks to understand experiences, thoughts, or behaviors across a data set (Kiger & Varpio, 2020). Using this method, the main themes that were determined are the facilitators and barriers and six subthemes were established. Results show that environmental factors (clinician's provision of instructions, etc.) can lead to personal factors (level of confidence, etc.). Furthermore, the study concludes that the perceived facilitators and barriers of the caregivers mainly arise from themselves, others, and their environment. The study also emphasized the need to improve the facilitators and target these barriers to help the caregivers implement the instructions provided to them successfully
