Aphasia is neurological language disorder that effects speaking, understanding, reading, and writing. The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of sound amplification on language comprehension in people with aphasia. While participants have normal hearing, it is predicted that amplification will improve comprehension by decreasing attentional demands and reserving cognitive resources for language processing. Methods, results, and future directions will be discussed.
