Aphasia Awareness

Jun 25, 2013

Aphasia is a communication disorder that occurs frequently after someone experiences a brain insult; the most common cause is a stroke in the left hemisphere of the brain. More specifically, the communication impairment experienced by people with aphasia includes problems in spoken language, understanding, reading and writing; while for the most part thinking remains clear.  The MGH Institute of Health Professions has a long standing treatment program for people with aphasia.

In honor of Aphasia Awareness Week,  the staff and faculty of the Institute produced a video to educate others about aphasia and the services available for this important group of patients and their families.  Enjoy!
