This packet is all about aphasia and it is our biggest packet EVER! Aphasia affects over 2 million people in the United States alone. People can develop aphasia after having a stroke, brain injury, or aging-related disorders. Aphasia is a loss of language, not intellect. Many people living with aphasia are very intelligent but struggle with language.
In this worksheet, we provide you with 5 exercises to use with your clients to practice strategies related to language. Your client will be exposed to different task requirements, all sharing the underlying component of language. Other functions also challenged in this worksheet include executive functioning, working memory, and attention.

Language is a complex cognitive skill that involves executive functioning, memory, visual, and auditory processing skills. Sometimes, people may have difficulty with one or more aspects of language such as word retrieval, sentence comprehension, or word choice.
Language difficulties can occur as a result of a medical event such as a stroke or can be caused by developmental disabilities, as well as a result of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Typically, SLP’s work with clients on language skills. However, sometimes educators, psychologists, or other professionals may also work with a client on one or more aspects of language.

Speech is a complex cognitive process that involves verbal memory, executive functioning, working memory, attention, and auditory processing. Sometimes, people may have difficulty with one or more cognitive components of speech due to a medical condition, such as experiencing a stroke. In this packet, your client will be asked to describe scenes in as much detail as they can and tell a story based on the details found in each scene. You can use this packet to practice and assess your client’s verbal fluency.

Speech-language pathologists (SLP’s) play a huge role in stroke rehabilitation. Strokes often cause aphasia. Aphasia can present as a loss of language or as having difficulty comprehending speech. SLP’s may help patients with stroke not only speak but understand language again. Here are 3 ways SLP’s can help stroke patients with language.
Language is one of the ways we communicate. It is one that when it is lost it is greatly missed. Kyra’s background and work with executive function skills with the smart but struggling learner, has led her to a better understanding of the connection between the two. Language is complex and understanding the role that executive functions influence on it is important.
