Neurogenics 2 (CSCD5029)

UNIT OF STUDY

In this subject, students will learn about acquired neurogenic language disorders (i.e. aphasia and cognitive-communication disorders) from dominant and non-dominant cerebral lesions (i.e. stroke), traumatic brain injury (TBI) and degenerative diseases (e.g., dementia, primary progressive aphasia). Students will identify and explain the nature of acquired neurogenic language impairments using current theoretical perspectives and develop evidenced-based approaches to assessment and management of these impairments
