dc.description.abstract The current study investigated the auditory processing and language processing in people who had suffered a stroke at least six months ago. Fourteen stroke participants were recruited for the study with age and gender matched fourteen control participants. The hearing assessments and the auditory processing tests revealed that the stroke participants had poorer hearing levels and auditory processing abilities compared to the control group. The language measures showed that those who have suffered a stroke had difficulties in naming, fluency and comprehension of spoken and written sentences. Performance in naming and fluency tasks are consistent with previous studies conducted with stroke participants. the current project also revealed that impaired temporal processing has an impact on the comprehension of spoken language. en
