Wong’s assessment we began up top with screening her vision and visual perception. We used the Adult Perceptual Screening Test (OT-APST), which showed no initial signs of impairment, but we will continue to recheck her vision, so we can make sure the relaxed features of her face will not produce problems in the future. Next, we tested Mrs. Wong’s memory and cognition, by using the Cognitive assessment of Minnesota. At this time, Mrs. Wong scored a 55, so her cognition is considered mild, and it should improve if she continues working on the memory recall tests. For Mrs. Wong’s upper body, we utilized two tests.

Global Aphasia has an effect on both the language production and understanding functions of the brain. The symptoms of it are that they have hardship understanding and forming words and sentences, as well as struggle with effectively communicating altogether, however they can understand some words and form a few basic words at a time (American Stroke Association,
In my first semester at Duke University, I have witnessed an array of attacks on minorities and the subsequent reaction by various student groups, ultimately leading to the production of an independent underground zine consisting of pieces written by a multitude of students: the Un-Chronicled. In this paper, I attempt to analyze the discourse set forth in the magazine using mainly the political ideologies presented by Wendy Brown in “Wounded Attachments” and, to a lesser extent, Richard Ford in “Beyond ‘Difference’: A Reluctant Critique of Legal Identity Politics.” While I believe many of the points made in the publication are valid and deserve the attention of both fellow students and administration, the presentation of those points is often
Most helpful was CALSO, meeting with the Counselors in Barrows Sociology Department during CALSO, which allowed me to declare my major early. Next was meeting with Danny in DSPS, Yuki and Briana whom each gave me excellent advice on taking 198 and 198BC classes my first semester. Their advice has made my new student experience less
Wright’s everyday life, and thus his speech disorder affects multiple aspects of his life. “Patients have difficulty producing grammatical sentences and their speech is limited mainly to short utterances of less than four words. Producing the right sounds or finding the right words is often a laborious process. Some persons have more difficulty using verbs than using nouns. A person with Broca’s aphasia may understand speech relatively well, particularly when the grammatical structure of the spoken language is simple.
Despite not placing in the competition, participating in the FBLA county competition was important to me because of the valuable lesson I learned. I had a long speech prepared that I had spent several days preparing and memorizing, and was confidant that I was going to ace it. But the second I stood in front of the judges, I stumbled over my words, lost my place on my note cards, and was so eager to get it over with i rushed through the rest of my speech and didn 't make the time limit. I was so prepared to give a winning speech, i was dissapointed in my inadequacy. Noticing my disappointment, when my adviser came to discuss the performance, he told me he was proud.
Research on the Neurogenic Disorder: Aphasia There are several types of Neurogenic speech disorders such as aprosody and apraxia of speech, but in this paper will be focused on the disorder otherwise known as, aphasia. Classified as a language disorder, aphasia debilitates a person’s ability to form, read, write and/or understand spoken language (“American Speech,” n.d.). My goal is to inform and create awareness about aphasia in hopes that it will break down the barriers between those with aphasia and those without. The purpose of this paper is to help patients with aphasia by knowing the three stages of aphasia, by knowing the psychosocial challenges of people with aphasia, and finally, by knowing different methods that will directly help
Studies have shown that such a technique is very useful in regaining lost ability, because the patient is forced to use the affected extremity. Pulvermuller et al. (2001) argued that a similar approach could be made with aphasic patients, who tend to use the least effortful manner of communication—which is often gestures, drawings, and sometimes writing. However, these patients need to enhance their verbal communication skills, even more than just the simple utterances that they know they can
Question 1 Language and cognitive assessments administered to the client in the case, a Cantonese-speaking lady with Wernicke’s aphasia, reveal a general post-stroke deficit in speech and language. With careful analysis of the results, which indicates the possibility of impairment in short-term memory (STM), phonological input lexicon (PIL) and phonological output lexicon (POL), I would recommend digit span forward, writing-to-dictation and reading aloud as further tests to understand her impairment. Assessments performed reveal possible impairment in STM of the client, which is important for temporary storage of incoming information for further processing. In the subtests of Cantonese version of Western Aphasic Battery (CAB) performed,
In the state of Arizona less than one in four Arizonans believe that the next generation will have a better standard of living than we have today. Only about 10% of Arizonans believe that their elected officials represent their interests. Another less optimistic fact about Arizonans is that only 12% of us trust their neighbors. Unfortunately, the situation only gets worse. Dealing with civic health Arizona ranks at the bottom of nearly every metric there is.
Regarding to CCD projects mentioned previously, interdisciplinary collaboration can be seen commonly, including artist, local organizer, social worker, community member, students. It is worthy to think about what the social worker’s role is in the CCD. Social workers serve three main roles - facilitator, organizer and advocate. As a facilitator, social workers could work in gathering and facilitating groups of people for community development, actively participating in cultural life, for instance, circle painting and symbiotic dance held by the CCCD. To be an organizer, social workers could carry out community organization in various levels from finding the potential local organizer to organize cultural project for the targeted community and
