In this subject, students will learn about acquired neurogenic language disorders with a focus on (i) language deficits that occur following stroke and in progressive language conditions and (II) cognitive-communication deficits that occur following Traumatic Brain Injury. Students will identify and explain the nature of acquired neurogenic language impairments using current theoretical perspectives and develop wholistic, client centred and evidenced-based approaches to assessment and management of these impairments.
