What causes dysphasia?
Dysphasia is a language 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 communication1. 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". Aphasia literally means no speech. But the speech impairment in aphasia could range from complete absence of speech to difficulty in naming a few objects. Aphasia is generally tested on the basis of comprehension of speech, fluency of speech, repetition and naming of objects1. 1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dysphasia

What is Aphasia?
Aphasia is a language impairment caused by neurologic damage, usually to the left hemisphere of the brain. It can effect how a person comprehends language (receptive) or uses language (expression). It can also cause a "global" impairment of language (effecting both reception and expression). Aphasia is commonly diagnosed in the early stages of recovery after a stroke or a head injury. People typically receive speech therapy to improve their language skills. Prognosis for improvement varies based on type and location of brain injury and severity of lesion.
