    You did a great job, Julia, and the video is quite informative and well put
    together! As I teach graduate students in speech-language pathology, I am
    always hammering at them to understand the difference between speech and
    language … Best wishes to you, and very nice project! :)

    Thanks for sharing, I found the video very informative. It would be great
    if you could also include footage that illustrates different types of
    aphasia. There are multiple videos of this kind on Youtube, but having them
    all summarized in one would be very convenient.

    Thank you!!! It’s really interesting :) I’m Diana, from Mexico, and I’m
    searching for information about Aphasia. Your video was very informative.
    Thank you for sharing!

    Whoa! Good (and important) catch 212suzyQ! Aphasia isn’t a motor speech
    disorder although it’s thought to co-occur with apraxia in about 90% of
    cases. I was still in my first quarter of graduate school when I made this
    and now I wince a little bit in places. Two additional corrections: What I
    refer to as “Music Intonation Therapy” in the video is actually called
    Melodic Intonation Therapy and I believe that Gifford’s injury actually
    showed an anterior bullet wound exit.

    You have defined Broca’s aphasia as a motor speech disorder when aphasia is
    a language disorder. True that it often co-exists with motor speech
    disorders, most commonly apraxia of speech, it is not a motor speech
    disorder.
