Speech Therapy for
Aphasia following Brain Injury
Speech Therapy for Aphasia
Accoring to the Mayo Clinic "Aphasia is a condition that affects one's ability to communicate. It can affect your ability to speak, write and understand language, both verbal and written. Aphasia typically occurs suddenly after a stroke or a head injury. But it can also come on gradually from a slow-growing brain tumor or a disease that causes progressive, permanent damage (degenerative). The severity of aphasia depends on a number of conditions, including the cause and the extent of the brain damage. Once the cause has been addressed, the main treatment for aphasia is speech and language therapy. The person with aphasia relearns and practices language skills and learns to use other ways to communicate. Family members often participate in the process, helping the person communicate."
Simply Speaking, Aphasia is the loss of speech and language after a stroke. There are over 2 million Americans with Aphasia. Some 25-40% of stroke survivors will experience acquired difficulty with speech, word finding, and difficulty maintaining conversations. This can lead to depression and social withdrawal. Our program emphasizes that Aphasia does not affect intelligence, and provides strategies for wordfinding and language expansion. Be sure to let us know if you are a Medicare Beneficiary.
