Aphasia is a speech disorder which is caused as a result of a lesion in the frontal or temporal lobe. In the present article, a patient suffering from Broca aphasia, caused by a strike on the area responsible for speech in her brain, is studied. In speech therapy sessions of this patient, it was found that, this patient passed the same stages as learning her mother tongue to re-learn her language. For example she used overgeneralization, moved from concrete learning to conceptual learning, articulated the simpler consonants first and moved from sounds which are produced by the lips to the ones produced by glottis. It seems that if the speech therapist is aware of the findings of psycho-linguistics, especially the first language acquisition process, it can help to improve the condition of these patients. At the end, it suggests that a linguist accompany the speech therapist and physiotherapist in speech therapy sessions.
