The younger woman has a speech bubble with a question mark, which indicates that a speech therapist is needed.

What is a aphasia?

Aphasia can occur following neurological damage from a stroke or other type of acquired brain injury. Aphasia can severely impact daily communication skills and limit participation in life activities such as:
  • Socialising with family and friends
  • Communicating independently at home and in the community
Long term challenges with communication can result in the loss of close relationships with family and friends which can ultimately lead to social isolation and a poor quality of life.

What are the symptoms of aphasia?​

While each person’s experience with aphasia can differ depending on the nature of their brain injury, people with aphasia may experience challenges with:
  • Thinking of/saying the word they want to use (word finding e.g. naming objects or actions)
  • Speaking in full sentences
  • Repeating what others say
  • Understanding what is said to them
  • Recognising letters and understanding information they read
  • Spelling and written communication
People with aphasia may also have other communication challenges that make it difficult to speak clearly:
  • They may have muscle weakness (dysarthria)
  • They may have challenges in planning speech movements (apraxia)
These speech challenges can impact how easily they can be understood by others.

How a speech pathologist can help

Speech pathologists can help people with aphasia in several ways:
  • We can help to improve speaking, listening, reading and writing skills
  • We can help to bring together other people who are experiencing similar challenges to practice conversation skills together and build new friendships
  • We can train communication partners around strategies to improve their interactions with people with aphasia for clearer communication
  • We can develop aphasia-friendly or ‘easy-to-read’ materials to help people with aphasia better understand key written and spoken information
  • We can develop low and high technology communication aids to assist people with aphasia in communicating at home and in the community
