Some of us did’nt really understand difference between expressive and receptive aphasia…
hope this help!
For better understanding~
EXPRESSIVE / BROCA’S APHASIA
– the person knows what he or she wants to say yet has difficulty communicating it to others. It doesn’t matter whether the person is trying to say or write what he or she is trying to communicate.
RECEPTIVE / WERNICKE’S APHASIA
– the person can hear a voice or read the print, but may not understand the meaning of the message. Oftentimes, someone with receptive aphasia takes figurative language literally.
