Receptive aphasia

Common Name(s)

Receptive aphasia

Aphasia is a disorder that results from damage to the parts of the brain that control language and can cause problems with any or all of the following: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Receptive aphasia occurs when an individual has trouble understanding others. The individual can hear a voice or read print, but may not understand the meaning of the message. Oftentimes, someone with receptive aphasia takes language literally. Their own speech may be disturbed because they do not understand their own language. Some characteristics of receptive aphasia include needing extra time to understand spoken messages; finding it difficult to follow fast speech; and taking the literal meaning of figurative speech. There are many types of treatment available and the type of treatment depends on the needs and goals of the person with aphasia.
