    1. A cognitive neuropsychological approach to assessment and intervention in aphasia: a clinician's guide - Anne Whitworth, Janet Webster, David Howard 2014

      Book Essential This book is where you need to go to understand the cognitive neuropsychological model. I recommend you read all the chapters on single word processing to go with the lectures as they progress. Start with auditory comprehension, then move to verbal expression/naming, then reading and writing.
