Affecting approximately 1 in 250 Americans, Aphasia is a common neurological disorder resulting from damage to the language centers of the brain. While the precise symptoms experienced vary depending on the location of the damage, some of the most common include difficulty reading, writing, speaking, and understanding speech. Due to the importance of language and communication, living with aphasia can place a serious strain on your loved one, particularly if the symptoms are severe.
