Characterization and Clinical Management of Aphasia (PD102573)

Course Description

The articles in this journal self-study focus on the characterization and clinical management of aphasia, one theme that researchers explored in the 2020 Clinical Aphasiology Conference (CAC) forum. Published in the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, these articles present cutting-edge research and discussion on word finding difficulties, sematic processing, and spoken discourse.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Discuss how subjective patient perceptions and self-reported experiences can inform treatment planning for anomia 
  • Explain why an assessment task that measures the effects of working memory load along with category typicality can aid assessment of people with mild aphasia 
  • Summarize various theories of the relationship between gesture and language in people with aphasia 
  • Summarize the main findings and next steps for an initial study on repetition priming in anomia intervention
