Dysphasia redirects here, and is mentioned in the second Infobox_disease instance, but it's not defined or explained in the lede, or even mentioned a single time in the prose - What's missing here? MrZaiustalk 12:09, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
- Having experience with a child with dysphasia, I, too, am wondering why there is not a separate article on it. It seems like dysphasia - definition of dysphasia by Medical dictionary might be a good place to start. Though there seems to be some ambiguity of use of the term, particularly in the U.S., it is my understanding that aphasia is the absence of verbal communication ability whereas dysphasia is a partial loss or impairment of verbal communication ability. That may not be medically significant, but when it comes to working with an afflicted person, it makes all the difference in the world. Softtest123 (talk) 21:25, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
I wanted to add a few things to the symptoms section of this article. I want to add 'Often those with aphasia will try to hide their inability to name objects by using words like thing. So when asked to name a pencil they may say it is a thing used to write. Also I want to add the symptom -inability to to follow or understand simple requests
All of this information was found in the textbook Abnormal Psychology by Susan Nolen-Hoeksema which I will cite with my edits.
I believe that this is important information to add to this article to help the readers better understand aphasia as well as to make them aware of an additional symptom of aphasia. And I want to know if others think it will be a good addition as well. Misskatiem (talk) 23:41, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
Localizationist model - of historical interest only?
The model of aphasia describe in this section is rather archaic, and also rather dense and difficult to understand. I suggest it might work better if moved to a section on History?
In popular culture
Added an in popular culture to aid cultural awareness of aphasia. Needs expanding though!
