Aphasia and Speech Therapy
Aphasia is an acquired communication disorder that is caused by any disease or injury that causes damage to the part of the brain that controls speech and language, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neurological disorders
Aphasia can impair an individual’s speech, comprehension, reading, and writing skills. While those with aphasia may have difficulty communicating, the diagnosis does not imply that a person’s intelligence has been affected.
At our hospital, speech therapists work with patients, their family members, and other members of our multi-disciplinary team to help improve a patient’s:
- Spoken language expression
- Spoken language comprehension
- Written expression
- Reading comprehension
