Mixed Non-fluent Aphasia

Mixed non-fluent aphasia applies to persons who have sparse and effortful speech, resembling severe Broca’s aphasia. However, unlike individuals with Broca’s aphasia, mixed non-fluent aphasia patients remain limited in their comprehension of speech, similar to people with Wernicke’s aphasia. Individuals with mixed non-fluent aphasia do not read or write beyond an elementary level.
