Impacts of Stroke on Speech

One of the most common effects of stroke on patients is speech impairment, and it is in the form of aphasia.

Aphasia happens when a certain area of the brain is damaged by a stroke attack, affecting your speech, reading, writing, and communication skills. There are several forms of aphasia in stroke patients, and each differs in terms of its severity.

When you reach out to us, we can diagnose the severity of your speech disability brought by stroke. We utilize the latest techniques to diagnose our patients and provide easy-to-understand information that patients and families can use during the course of the patients’ recovery.
