    Symptoms usually begin with word-finding problems naming and progress to impaired grammar syntax and comprehension sentence processing and semantics. With the Proloquo2Go appindividuals press symbols and images to produce spoken words. Is this impairment aphasia? However, there is much variance between how often one type of severity occurs in certain types of aphasia. Mean scores are used as the basis for predicting later levels of function. Individuals with Broca's aphasia often have right-sided weakness or paralysis of the arm and leg, because the left frontal lobe is also important for body movement, particularly on the right side.
