Rev. soc. bras. fonoaudiol. [online]. 2009, vol.14, n.3, pp.416-420. ISSN 1982-0232. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-80342009000300020.
The aim of this study was to describe the effects of the interdisciplinar dynamic clinical assessment in a case attended at the Research Ambulatory of Language in Hearing Disorders of the São Paulo Hospital - Federal University of São Paulo. It is describe the case of a 26-year-old woman who presented sudden bilateral deafness, as a result of Cogan's syndrome - which also affects the vision. When the intervention process began, the patient had restricted orofacial reading, difficulty to communicate with her family, social isolation and depressive symptoms. The dynamic assessment based on interactivity and humanistic listening provided conditions for the patient to improve her communication, self-concept and social interaction. From this perspective, it was noticed that, with only ten sessions of intervention, therapeutic effects were operated, therefore breaking the classic assessment/intervention dichotomy at different moments.
