Aphasia is a communication disorder that occurs in about 30% of people who have had a stroke. 

Aphasia may affect speaking, understanding words, reading and writing. People with aphasia know more than they can say. Speech-language pathologists help people with aphasia connect with others and participate in everyday life.
