Communication Difficulties following a Stroke

These are some examples of the communication difficulties that we assess and treat:

  • Dysphasia / Aphasia – A language disorder which may affect a person’s ability to speak, write and understand spoken or written words, possibly following a head injury or stroke
  • Dysarthria – An articulation disorder due to disturbed or weak control of the muscles for speech, e.g. lips, tongue, jaw, palate, vocal folds and muscles which control breathing
  • Dyspraxia (verbal) – An articulation disorder which affects a person’s ability to plan and execute speech movements in the absence of muscle weakness, paralysis, sensory loss, comprehension deficit or ataxia, for example after a stroke
