Course Content

This module aims to update your theoretical understanding of aphasia and, for practitioners, help you apply that knowledge.  It aims to encourage the integration of language processing theory with social approaches to aphasia.

It will explore specific issues in aphasia, such as conversation and non verbal modalities and specific manifestations, such as jargon aphasia and aphasia in bilingual language users.

The module will also consider innovations in aphasia therapy such as the use of multimedia technology. Critical and reflective thinking will be promoted, both with respect to the literature and to clinical practice.
