Discourse Production and Right Hemisphere Disorder

Journal Article

Discourse production deficits associated with right hemisphere disorder (RHD) can impede aspects of daily living, including socialization, community reintegration, and vocational duties. Adults with RHD are referred to speech-language pathologists (SLPs) infrequently. However, a growing interest in the pragmatic ramifications of acquired brain damage may result in an increase of referrals in the future. For this reason, it will be important for SLPs to be familiar with basic knowledge pertaining to communication behaviors across discourse genres. The purpose of this article is to provide a broad foundation of the behavioral manifestations of discourse production deficits following RHD, in hopes of providing practical information applicable to the practicing clinician.
