Do you frequently care for patients who have language deficits as a result of a tumor or resection? Learn how to maximize their communications skills during this session, which addresses the unique language implications of a primary or metastatic brain tumor location. You’ll examine the eloquent brain, which is associated with language comprehension, the production of language, writing, and reading. Your exploration will cover Broca’s area, Wernicke’s area, and the Sylvian fissure. You’ll also learn how to collaborate with neuropsychologists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists for your patients’ maximum therapeutic benefit. 

Objectives
1. Predict likely language deficits based on tumor location.
2. Appropriately assess patients for potential language deficits based on tumor location.
