Today dad and I went to an aphasia support group and picnic. As my therapist said, a group of aphasics can be really loud!
I go to speech therapy for my aphasia 4x a week with my great teachers at Spaulding. For example, this post took me about an hour (even more) to complete.
Aphasia (pronounced /əˈfeɪʒə/ or pronounced /əˈfeɪziə/) is an acquired language disorder in which there is an impairment of any language modality. This may include difficulty in producing or comprehending spoken or written language. (From Wikipedia.)
Boston University has an Aphasia Resource Center that's been running for 20 years.
