This presentation will provide information on the difficulties related to language and cognition clients face pertaining to the expression of their religious beliefs after a CVA. The three most common types of aphasia (Broca’s Wernicke’s, and Global) that commonly follow a CVA will be defined. The impact on emotional and cognitive functioning due to an inability to fully engage in religious practices will be discussed. Lastly, interventions to be used by SLPs to support language use and cognitive functioning in avenues of religious expression will be explained.
