Aphasia is a condition that arises from injury to the parts of the brain responsible for producing language. It can cause problems with speech, as well as reading and writing. It can result in difficulty finding words, formulating sentences, and understanding spoken language.
Some of the most common causes of aphasia are stroke or brain tumor, but it can also be caused by brain infection, dementia, or head trauma.
There are different types of aphasia:expressive, global, transcortical sensory, transcortical motor.
Expressive Aphasia is difficulty getting thoughts out through speech and writing (using words). This person may have trouble with grammar and word finding. He/she may speak in short phrases that don’t make sense. They may use some words correctly but not others. For example: “I go home today” instead of “I’m going home today”.
Global Aphasia is the most severe type of aphasia. It causes problems with understanding language – both spoken and written – as well as speaking and writing. People with global aphasia might be able to say just one or two words at a time; they will make errors in grammar; they will have difficulty understanding what others say.
The speech therapist will begin the therapy process by evaluating and treating swallowing difficulties. The speech-language pathologist then evaluates and treats language, cognitive, voice and speech needs.
Stuttering is a speech disorder that affects the flow of speech. It can be caused by a variety of things such as nervousness, anxiety, or an injury to the brain. Stuttering may also be genetic, which means it runs in families. The most common treatment for stuttering is speech therapy. Speech therapy can help with all aspects of communication.
The main goal of speech therapy is to improve communication skills so that the patient may participate more fully in all aspects of life. A speech therapist will work with the patient and family to find the most effective way to help the patient communicate. There are many ways to do this, such as helping the patient learn new words or working on word sounds that are difficult for them to pronounce. Another important part of speech therapy is helping patients learn how to use their voice and body language more effectively when communicating with others.
Some speech problems occur when a person has an injury or disease that affects their ability to speak clearly and fluently. These conditions include apraxia (an inability to move your mouth), dysarthria (difficulty moving your tongue), dysphonia (poorly formed vowels), and spasmodic dysphonia (a condition where the muscles in your throat become tense or tight).
Speech therapy is a type of therapy that helps patients improve their communication skills. Speech therapists, or speech-language pathologists (SLPs), do this by working with patients to improve their articulation, or how the words sound when they speak.
Speech therapy is a form of therapy that aims to treat communication disorders and swallowing disorders. Speech therapists work with people of all ages, including infants, children, teens, and adults. They are trained to diagnose, assess, and treat disorders that affect the ability to produce and/or comprehend speech. A speech therapist will work with a client one-on-one, in small groups, or in a classroom setting. The results of therapy are often improved language skills, better communication skills, and an overall improved quality of life.
