Aphasia is a communication disorder that results from damage to the parts of the brain that contain language. It may cause difficulties in speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
Our speech therapists believe that early intervention with the right therapy and good family support is crucial to our client’s recovery.
Aphasia is most often caused by stroke. However, any disease or damage to the parts of the brain that control language can cause aphasia. These include brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, and progressive neurological disorders.
The specific symptoms and severity of aphasia vary depending on the location and extent of brain damage. Individuals with aphasia may have one or more of the following problems:
Our skilled pathologists evaluate our clients with a variety of tools to determine the type and severity of aphasia. We will then customise a therapy programme with activities to improve specific language skills affected by damage to the brain. Our therapy programmes are specially designed to be functional, relevant and enjoyable for the individual client.
