Stroke & Communication
Stroke often affects the areas of the brain that control language. This causes a language problem called aphasia. Aphasia impacts communication. It can make it difficult for a person to talk, understand words, read, write, or use numbers.
A weekly communication group is directed by a Speech-Language Pathologist – Marie Shuman, BA (Hons), MSc., R-SLP( C), #2541 – along with the support of volunteers (many of whom are pursuing a career in speech-language pathology).
