Short paper: Aphasia
Select a type of aphasia (or pure alexia, dyslexia, dysgraphia) and describe the underlying functional neuroanatomy and possible causes of damage to that anatomy that would result in the dysfunction. What deficits would be expected, and what functions would remain intact? How would the aphasia affect a child functionally at different levels of development? What interventions might be used with a child affected by your selected aphasia?
Guidelines for Submission: The short paper should be 2–4 pages, double-spaced, with 12-point Times New Roman font and 1-inch margins, and include citations in APA format.
