Watch our webinar series on Science Gives Hope as Susan Wortman-Jutt presents on aphasia, the silent disorder. Approximately 30% of individuals who have had a stroke live with aphasia—a speech and language disorder that affects one’s ability to express themselves verbally. Aphasia may also effect language comprehension, reading and writing skills, meaningful for daily life.

Topics to be presented include:

  • What is aphasia and how does it affect all aspects of communication?
  • What injuries and diseases cause aphasia (different types and severities)?
  • How does aphasia impacts those living with aphasia and caregivers in the community?
  • Hope for those with aphasia: An overview of current research.
