Aphasia: Characteristics and teaching methods

The aim of this research paper is to explain the characteristics of aphasia, how it affects human learning abilities, and the teaching methods that can help individuals with aphasia improve/regain their language skills. Aphasia is a language disorder caused by brain injury. A problem in education, especially in special education, is that many educators are unfamiliar with aphasia. In fact, many special education teachers have never even heard of aphasia. This article addresses that knowledge gap by providing some insight into useful teaching methods for working with learners/individuals with aphasia. Originally, I wrote this article during my doctoral studies at Northcentral University in Arizona. This article can be very beneficial to educators, special education teachers, and school psychologists.
