LOSING COMMUNICATION ABILITIES AFTER STROKE . . .
IT'S HEARTBREAKING !
A person's speech "may" be affected after a stroke if there has
been damage to the left hemisphere of the brain.
A person could have aphasia after stroke. They could have it
whether the damage has occurred in the front left or back left
hemisphere. It depends on the severity of the stroke and how
quickly you get help. There are many factors to consider. If one
is lucky enough, there'll be no communication damage after
stroke. However, there can be a small loss or a devastating amount
Dysarthria after a stroke or brain injury is another possible disability
that may occur. These are the two most
common speech defects that can occur after a stroke. When
there is a problem with speech . . . it can cover areas that people
THINK ABOUT IT . . .
1. You need your speech to converse with people.
2. You need your speech to relay your thoughts, so they don't
get bottled up, and just lay there with "no way out"
3. You need your speech to understand what is being said to
4. You need your speech to listen.
5. You need your speech to be able to write.
6. You need your speech to be able to read.
7. You need your speech in order to give your opinions on
things . . . in order to ask for things . . . and in order to
express your wants, needs, and feelings. You need to be
able to communicate!
It's devastating to be what is called "locked-in"!
