June is National Aphasia Month!
Stroke is the leading cause of aphasia. One in four stroke survivors experience some form of language impairment after a stroke. Strokes that damage the frontal and parietal lobes in the right hemisphere of the brain can cause a person to have difficulty expressing and processing language. Aphasia is an acquired communication disorder that impairs a person's ability to process language, but does not affect intelligence. Aphasia impairs the ability to speak and understand others, and most people with aphasia experience difficulty reading and writing. For more information about Aphasia, visit the National Aphasia Association site.
