About Aphasia

Aphasia is a medical condition in which you are unable to communicate with others and/or comprehend language. Aphasia is often the result of an injury to the head, stroke, a degenerative disease such as dementia, or a brain tumor. People with aphasia may attempt to speak, but make sounds rather than recognizable words. People with aphasia may also only speak in very short sentences or only be able to say a few words. Speech typically doesn't make sense, and people with aphasia often have trouble writing, and may not understand when others speak. How aphasia affects different individuals depends on the severity and location of the damage in the brain. Some people with aphasia may recover some communication skills through speech therapy.
