Aphasia is an acquired disorder that affects a person’s ability to use and comprehend language. The result of an injury to the brain, it does not affect intelligence, but can compromise speech, writing, reading, and understanding of spoken words.
Aphasia is most often the result of stroke or head injury. Approximately 30% of stroke survivors have aphasia and/or other language disorders that challenge their language skills. Annually, there are approximately 1500 strokes that affect Nova Scotians. Of those who survive, approximately 500 have aphasia.
