Summary:

Our understanding of aphasia has significantly increased over the last decade, due in part to advancements in technology and brain-imaging techniques that have demonstrated that language and cognition are complex processes that share neurocircuitry. The interaction of these processes greatly influences the manifestation of symptoms of aphasia following a stroke, the degree of recovery, and the response to therapy. Effective management of aphasia requires consideration of the specific language deficits and any coexisting cognitive problems; therefore, speech-language pathologists need to consider the patient‘s cognitive functioning as well as language ability. This educational course will review the relationship between language and cognition, the impact of cognitive deficits on communication in aphasia, and approaches that may be used to assess cognition in aphasia.

Objectives:

After taking this course, you should be able to:
  • Describe the cognitive deficits and their effect on communication in people with aphasia.
  • Explain the impact of cognitive deficits on response to treatment for aphasia.
  • Identify approaches and tools appropriate for assessment of cognition in people with aphasia.
