When your brain holds your words hostage
June is National Aphasia Awareness Month.
Aphasia is a deficit in expressive and/or receptive language, meaning difficulty producing speech or understanding speech. It can impact reading, writing and math skills as well.
Aphasia can manifest in saying the wrong words, difficulty finding any words and even saying things that are not words. This can cause frustration, confusion, and unusual changes in behavior.
JTOPS has provided you with an Aphasia Fact Sheet from the National Aphasia Association to learn more ways to help your loved one.
Our highly skilled Speech Language Pathologist at JTOPS can provide numerous valuable tips and strategies to compensate for the changes in the brain and help regain the ability to communicate effectively.
