What is Aphasia?

Aphasia is the inability to understand others or express one’s self. A person with aphasia may have difficulties with speaking, comprehending, reading, and/or writing. Aphasia typically is the result of a cerebrovascular accident (CVA or stroke) in the left hemisphere of the brain, but can also result from cancer, tumors, aneurysm, or other injuries. Aphasia can be divided into two types, expressive and receptive.


Speech Therapy for Aphasia

Treatment will focus on rebuilding a person’s ability to communicate with instruction of compensatory strategies and/or alternative ways to communicate, as well as tasks targeting speech, language, reading, and writing.
