Aphasia is a communication disorder often caused by a stroke in the left hemisphere of the brain. It can affect a number of language domains, including verbal fluency (speaking), auditory comprehension (understanding spoken language), word retrieval (naming objects and actions), reading, and writing. A person with aphasia may have difficulty with any combination of these language domains.
Treatment for aphasia includes practicing targeted exercises to help clients regain skills and developing compensatory strategies to support communication and increase independence. We believe that the key to improvement is developing a personalized treatment plan, which takes into account each client’s unique goals and needs, with an emphasis on supporting our clients in returning to the activities they enjoy.
