What is Aphasia?
The National Institutes of Health defines aphasia as “a neurological disorder caused by damage to the portions of the brain that are responsible for language production or processing.” This language disruption affects speaking most obviously, but other language functions — speech comprehension, reading and writing — are also affected to varying degrees. There is a resulting critical impact on communication. That is, the give and take of information and viewpoints, and social connections that are essential to all human activities are often seriously disturbed (Simmons-Mackie, 2020).
