Types of #aphasia (National Aphasia Association)

So, what is aphasia, again? Well, aphasia comes in many types. Depending on the cerebral location and severity of the brain injury, the linguistic consequences vary.

The National Aphasia Association (US) has put together a graphic presentation of different types of aphasia, based on if the speech is fluent, if the person can understand what others say and if the person can repeat words or phrases. On their website, the types are also described more in detail. Very informative, don’t you think?

Worth noting, though, is that the terms ”Broca’s” anda ”Wernicke’s” aphasia are being critiqued.

Btw, have you seen the two YouTube videos I recommended earlier?
