Aphasia is a condition that affects a person's ability to understand and use language. It can be caused by damage to the brain, such as from a stroke or brain injury, and can affect a person's ability to speak, listen, read, and write.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with aphasia, you may be feeling confused and overwhelmed. I am here to help you navigate the impact of Aphasia.

Aphasia can range in severity, from mild difficulties with language to complete loss of the ability to understand or produce language. It can also affect different aspects of language, such as a person's ability to produce words, understand what others are saying, or use grammar correctly.

What to expect

I will complete an assessment (or two) and interview to develop an individual plan to treat your aphasia. We need to figure out what area/s of language are being impacted - as well as the strengths that we have to work with. 

The goal of treatment is to help individuals with aphasia improve their language skills and communication abilities, and to support them in living fulfilling lives.

While aphasia can be challenging, there are many steps you can take to improve your language skills and communicate more effectively.

Here are some tips from me to think about before we meet:

  • Practice, practice, practice! One of the most important things you can do to improve your language skills is to practice using them regularly. This can include reading, writing, and speaking, as well as participating in activities that involve language and communication.

  • Use assistive technology: There are many assistive technology devices and tools available that can help you communicate more easily. These may include communication boards, speech-generating devices, and other technologies that can help you express yourself more effectively.

  • Take your time: Don't feel rushed or pressured to communicate quickly. It's okay to take your time and use whatever strategies or techniques you find helpful in order to get your message across.

  • Ask for help: If you're struggling to communicate, don't be afraid to ask for help. Your friends, family, and healthcare providers can all be valuable resources in helping you improve your language skills.
