Abstract

It is incumbent upon clinicians and researchers working with older aphasic individuals to be knowledgeable about factors that may influence age-related cognitive performance and the ability of older subjects to acquire new knowledge. Adult learning theories postulate the constructs of fluid and crystallized intelligence in regulating new learning. Evidence suggests that these forms of intelligence are differentially influenced by age and experience. Incorporating aspects of adult learning theory into clinical and investigative protocols with older aphasic adults may lead to a more thorough understanding of the disorder and more effective and efficient treatment protocols.
