June is National Aphasia Awareness Month

What is aphasia?

    Aphasia is an impairment of language, affecting the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to read or write.

    Aphasia is always due to injury to the brain-most commonly from a stroke, particularly in older individuals. But brain injuries resulting in aphasia may also arise from head trauma, from brain tumors, or from infections.

How we can help:
