Aphasia; a Communication Difficulty Caused By Brain Injury

Mr Konrad Ermert - Secretary, Aphasia Victoria

 

Aphasia is a communication difficulty caused by brain injury. It can also be called ‘dysphasia’.

Aphasia is a language difficulty caused by injury to the brain (usually stroke). Aphasia can also be caused by other neurological disorders affecting the part of the brain that is important for language eg. tumours, aneurysms, head injuries. There are also progressive forms of aphasia.

Imagine waking one day to find you could not speak or understand what was being said to you, read the paper or even write your name, but you are thinking normally! How frustrating would it be to have your communication suddenly taken away?

This is the experience of people with APHASIA.

There are over 120,000 Australians who are affected by aphasia.
