Aphasia Study: Gesture Types and Aphasia

Lingraphica Co-founder and Chief Scientist, Dr. Richard Steele, summarizes the findings of a team of investigators at academic and rehabilitation centers in The Netherlands, Warwick University (UK), and La Trobe University (Australia). The team reports how gestures are used communicatively by persons with aphasia (PWA). Their research focuses specifically on gesture types and representation techniques that convey information which is absent in the speech of the PWA during communicative transactions—that is, in their terminology, “essential gestures.”
