Rehabilitation for Aphasia–
Learning to Understand, Communicate & Speak Again
Most rehabilitation occurs within the first 6 months to 1 year after the stroke. People with aphasia and their family are often left without meaningful or functional communication when formal therapy ends. (Vickers & Hagge, 2007). Individuals who seek additional resources to continue speech therapy have continued to improve after years, even decades. It can be a long and frustrating number of years but rehabilitation for the brain doesn’t have to stop after a year. Aphasia resource centers can offer rehabilitation options & aphasia groups provide an opportunity to meet individuals with aphasia who are still improving even after ten plus years!
