Dysphasia - Symptoms & Treatment


Dysphasia is a speech disorder in which there is an impairment of speech and of comprehension of speech. It is caused by brain damage usually in the left side of the brain which is responsible for language and communication. Inefficient syntax and/or inefficient understanding of lexical classes of language (semantics) will cause stress when one listens and when one reads. The term dysphasia has been eclipsed by the modern usage of the term " aphasia " particularly in the field of speech/language pathology so as not to confuse with the swallowing disorder " dysphagia ." But the speech impairment in aphasia could range from complete absence of speech to difficulty in naming a few objects. Children with this difficulty sometimes play with much younger children. There seems to be less stress for them with younger children. Individuals with this difficulty are sometimes seen as having no sense of humor, but they might understand, appreciate and enjoy visual humor; it's verbal humor that escapes them. On this basis, aphasia can be classified as global aphasia, wernicke's aphasia , broca's aphasia , conduction aphasia, transcortical motor aphasia , transcortical sensory aphasia , anomic aphasia. Aphasia is generally tested on the basis of comprehension of speech, fluency of speech, repetition and naming of objects. Rage and outbursts that seem far more severe than the specifics of a situation warrant are often the symptoms that cause a subtle language evaluation to be undertaken to determine if there is a dysphasia problem.
