Abstract

A high incidence of transient aphasia among its cases has been recognized for some time by the Fort Hays Kansas State College Psychological Clinic. Clinical tests of transient aphasia are a routine part of the Clinic’s psychometric procedure, especially with children showing speech and reading disabilities. Abnormally long eye fixations where the word is known to the subject momentary binocular divergence, periodic eye tremors, blocks in phonation either with or without the usual symptoms of stuttering, superficial appearance of transitory deafness, and various motor blocks have been suspected as being evidence of transient aphasic conditions.
