“Aphasia is a medical condition that speech pathologists are very familiar with. The condition impairs a person’s ability to speak, write, and in many cases fail to comprehend the speech and writings of others. Doctors often describe what is happening to a patient by using the example that the symptoms are similar to a world traveler in a new foreign country for the first time and therefore is not capable of understanding the native language even though it is heard clearly. To clarify, a person suffering from the aphasia can hear the language but cannot understand what is being verbalized or written.”
