Are you supporting someone who has experienced a stroke?
Aphasia is a language disorder that commonly occurs after a stroke. It often results in an impaired ability to communicate. A person with aphasia may have difficulty speaking, listening, reading, and/or writing.
Augmentative and Alternative Communication(AAC) is a method of communication used by individuals with a wide range of communication impairments, including aphasia. Providing AAC to a person with aphasia supports their ability to communicate and engage socially. It supports communication and provides an alternative way to communicate while the person works on recovering as much natural speech as possible.
