Aphasia is an acquired communication disorder that impairs a person’s ability to process language but does NOT affect intelligence. Aphasia impairs the ability to speak and understand others and most people with aphasia experience difficulty reading and writing. More than 1 million Americans have aphasia and there are over 200,000 new cases each year.
 
Aphasia can occur in people of all ages, nationalities, socio-economic backgrounds and equally among men and women. Understanding, patience and a few commonsense strategies will help family, friends, caregivers, businesses and the public communicate with people with aphasia. Be sure to have their attention, be in a quiet place, give them a chance to speak and use gestures.
