Why We Share: How Aphasia Affects the Brain

Aphasia is a loss of language, not a loss of intellect. Over 2 million Americans are living with aphasia as a result of a stroke, brain injury, or neurodegenerative disease.

In this video, you can learn about the different kinds of aphasia and how they impact language. You can also show this video to your clients and client’s caregivers to help them understand aphasia.
