Handout: Aphasia


What is Aphasia?

Aphasia is a language disorder following neurological damage, most commonly, caused by a stroke. Depending on the site of damage, signs and symptoms of aphasia will vary. Individuals may experience difficulty understanding spoken or written language, trouble communicating daily wants and needs, or struggle with writing. Aphasia is a loss of language — not a loss of intelligence.
