Aphasia

Individuals who have suffered a stroke may experience a variety of different language impairments. Aphasia is a communication disorder that is caused by damage to the area of the brain that is responsible for expressing and processing speech and language. Aphasia is most commonly seen in clients who have experienced strokes. Adults with aphasia may present with mild to severe difficulties within the following areas:

  • Expressive Language Skills (e.g., word finding, articulation,vocabulary skills, grammar/sentence structure)
  • Receptive Language Skills (e.g., understanding speech, following instructions)
  • Social Language Skills (e.g., how to use language when talking to others)
  • Literacy Skills (e.g., reading & writing)

Our team at Anderson Therapy Services has experience providing support to individuals with aphasia and speech affected by stroke as well as their caregivers.

Treatment may also include Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) to assist the individual with their ability to communicate.
