Aphasia is an acquired communication disorder caused by brain injuries affecting the ability to speak, understand, read, and write. Aphasia is primarily due to a stroke and may also be the result of a head injury or brain tumour. Even a mild case of aphasia could disrupt communication in someone’s environment; this can lead to major social isolation or a split with an individual’s lifestyle. The rehabilitation process for someone suffering from aphasia varies from one person to the next. Most sufferers receive services in an in-house or external rehabilitation hospital. Community associations and organizations carry on with recovery and provide activities for people with aphasia, encouraging them to keep up their rehabilitation and social reintegration.
