Aphasia Therapy

Are you or your loved one having increased difficulty naming common things or finding your words? You know what you want to say, but you "just can't say it?"
I can help!

  • According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), there are 180,000 new aphasia cases every year in the U.S.

  • Aphasia is a language disorder caused by damage in a specific area of the brain that controls spoken language expression and comprehension, as well as reading and writing, and most commonly diagnosed after having a stroke. 

  • People with aphasia often experience frustration, embarrassment, discouragement, and ultimately social isolation when they are unable to communicate what they want to say or have trouble understanding other people. They may avoid engaging in conversations and participating in their favorite activities altogether.

Evaluation & Therapy

A speech-language evaluation can help to determine what type of aphasia you have, assess areas of strength related to verbal expression, auditory comprehension, oral reading, and writing skills, identify areas of impairment, assess patient's response to a variety of evidenced-based treatment strategies, develop goals, and establish a functional plan of treatment.

Speech-Language evaluation and treatment for loved ones with aphasia

  • During treatment sessions, caregivers are highly encouraged to participate and also learn effective communication techniques that will help their loved one with carry over.

  • My goal is to make you feel more confident communicating throughout activities of your daily living and using your learned strategies across all environments!
