Frequently Asked Questions
I/my family member has recently had a stroke. How can speech therapy help?
Aphasia is a language disorder that often occurs due to a stroke (though it can also develop as a result of other brain injuries). This is NOT a disorder of intelligence. Speech and language therapy can target meaningful goals relating to life participation (i.e., ordering at a restaurant, making phone calls) and communication (i.e., talking with friends and family) as well as provide strategies to assist with word finding and vocabulary difficulties.
