Persons with aphasia have language deficits that affect their ability to communicate at the discourse level. These linguistic impairments may be related to impaired cognitive functions. The study purpose was to determine the relationship among cognitive processes and story comprehension and production ability in PWA. Participants included 11 PWA and 20 control participants. Tasks included attention and memory measures and a story task. Participants told stories depicted in wordless picture books then answered questions about the stories. Preliminary results indicate that aphasia severity is a better predictor of performance on the story tasks than performance on the cognitive measures.
