REHA 100

The focus of this course is on acquired neurogenic language disorders.  After a brief survey of the basic neuroanatomy involved in normal language function, students will explore the range of changes that can occur in normal aging processes.  The primary focus of the course will be on the profile of language disorders that occur after stroke and traumatic brain injury.  Students will become familiar with language and cognitive-communication assessment tools, and will be able to describe and apply the principles of various intervention approaches through video analyses, hands-on practice and role-play demonstrations. The psychosocial impact of language impairment and its effect on the client, his/her family and community will be explored.
