June is National Aphasia Awareness Month. If you have had a senior loved one that has had a stroke or brain injury, you may be very aware of aphasia. Aphasia is “an impairment of language, affecting the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to read or write.”
Below are some great resources about aphasia:
