Advancements in Communication Treatment and Cognitive Assistance
This page will provide people with some information regarding the latest advancements in language learning devices or those who are destined at providing cognitive assistance to those with various impairments.
Although, the overall issues which put people in disadvantaged situations when it comes to language learning and communication are still physical disorders and conditions, the latest advancements in medical and psychological approaches are targeting mostly the nervous system and the brain, as units that contribute to the human sensitivity, perception and expression capabilities.
Classic methods used both in the past and which are still kept, include addressing the problems of language learning that might occur in disadvantaged people by trying physical ailments to the conditions that the learners suffer from. Therefore, a person who suffers from impaired hearing or even complete hearing loss would be treated conventionally, using either a hearing aid with enhancements or conversion to the sign communication for the respective language that the person wishes to learn. These methods are alright and have their emphasis on the manifestation of the physical condition, but they lack in addressing the inherent issues, which most of the time span from the nervous system, cerebral cortex, etc.
By trying to tackle the language learning issues by addressing them from a more in-depth direction, better results could be achieved in less time. To this end, most of the cutting edge technologies out there or even those that are still in work will address the issues of language learning through therapy that involves accessing the electrical impulses sent out by the brain to the speaking system – vocal chords and associated elements.
If the right signals are sent, at the right time, there are good chances of correcting language learning and speaking disabilities, even for good, as the brain adapts and begin to learn how to produce new impulses on its own.
