Living With Aphasia: The Basics

  
  
  
Sharon

June is National Aphasia Awareness Month, and even if you’re unfamiliar with the term itself, odds are you’ve known (or known of) someone with aphasia. “Aphasia,” explains Gainesville, Florida-based Speech Language Pathologist, Sharon P. Ascher, MA, CCC-SLP, “is a language disorder that occurs when there is damage to the language center of the brain. It can be caused by trauma or stroke.” That means aphasia is more common in adults, says Ascher, because, “…stroke is more common in adults, especially older adults. Aphasia can also occur from Traumatic Brain Injury [TBI] so it is possible for a child to acquire aphasia due to a brain injury.”
