              WITH AFTER STROKE SPEECH PROBLEMS            
 
                               YOU LEARN TO PLAY CHARADES  .   .   .  

After stroke, aphasia speech can be an acquired disorder . . . a result
in after stroke speech.    
There is difficulty in producing and sometimes
comprehending spoken and/or written language.  In other words, after
stroke survivors, may have speech problems.  Possibly, the inability to
speak all together along with being unable to read, write, or communi-
cate a thought or idea.  Listening skills can also be affected.  Aphasia
speech after a stroke can happen quite suddenly, when the  stroke
causes damage (in most people) to the left side of the brain.

It has been said that aphasia is one of the most heartbreaking and
devastating disabilities for the survivor and family members.  
The
stroke survivor is locked-in . . . within themselves.  It's frustrating at
times . . . most times!  Imagine having a piece of tape over your mouth,
understanding what is going on around you and unable to respond. 
Of course, there are different degrees of aphasia and this depends on
the severity of the brain damage after stroke. 

Check out this article and how it explains aphasia:

EXPRESSIVE APHASIA  

There are different degrees and types of aphasia.  A person may
not be able to speak at all.  Another may only be able to say 
single words like yes, no, hi and bye.  They may say something
and mean something else, for example clock, but they mean door. 
At times, they may put a group of words together, but they have
no meaning at all.  This type of aphasia speech is called "
expressive" aphasia.

RECEPTIVE APHASIA

Then there is "receptive" aphasia.  The inbound communication. Maybe  
you are talking too fast for the stroke survivor . . . they
can't comprehend 
what you are saying.  And then they may "not understand at all" . . . like
learning a new language.   

It can be extremely frustrating for the survivor and the caregiver/family
member.  You can be in a conversation, feeling like you're playing
charades  and understanding each other, thinking 
things are going great.
Then all of a sudden, there is this barrier.  It just jumps out at you, with
no warning.    

The original idea, which you thought was coming across, has totally gone
down the tubes.  You either start all over or just forget it.  It depends
on the moment and what your tolerance levels are at that point. 

Maybe it's best to put it on the back burner for a while.  If you are lucky, 
both of you . . . together . . . decide to continue on with it.  You start over
and over and over again.  At times, it needs to be put on hold!
