Hickin, J., Mehta, B. and Dipper, L. (2015). To the sentence and beyond: a single case therapy report for mild aphasia. Aphasiology, 29(9), pp. 1038-1061. doi: 10.1080/02687038.2015.1010474

Abstract

Background: Mild aphasia has received limited attention in the research literature, with few published treatment studies despite significant disruption of communication reported by affected individuals. This includes difficulty understanding and producing grammatically complex language, and consequent discourse and/or conversational difficulties. The limited research may be due to a lack of clarity regarding the deficits underlying the disorder, with linguistic and/or cognitive impairments implicated, as well as limited research and treatment resources being targeted at those with more severe deficits.
