Aphasia is an impairment of language, affecting the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to read or write. Aphasia is always due to injury to the brain-most commonly from a stroke, particularly in older individuals. Brain injuries resulting in aphasia may also arise from head trauma, from brain tumors, or from infections.
Speech Therapists of Calgary offers speech therapy for aphasia in the comfort of your home or long term care facility in Strathmore, Chestermere, Cochrane, Langdon, Okotoks, Bears Paw, Airdrie and central Calgary.
Aphasia may affect a single language domain, such as the ability to retrieve the names of objects, the ability to put words together into sentences, or the ability to read and spell. More commonly, however, multiple aspects of language comprehension and communication are impaired, while some channels remain accessible for a limited exchange of information.
The role of the Speech Language Pathologist is to determine the amount of function available in each language domain, and to offer treatment and family / caregiver education and training to enhance language comprehension and improve communication skills.
In severe cases, communication may be very frustrating and limited for an individual with aphasia. When this is the case, Speech Language Therapy can assist in helping the client to express themselves using alternative means of communicating. This approach encourages the use of compensatory strategies. In addition, an individual is encouraged to use any remaining language ability to assist in communicating with others.
Speech Language Pathologists at Speech Therapists of Calgary offer speech therapy for individuals with aphasia in the comfort of their home or care facility in Airdrie, Langdon, Okotoks, Cochrane, Chestermere, Stratmore, Bears Paw and Central Calgary. Family member and care giver training is provided to encourage daily practice of communication goals and facilitate speech and language rehabilitation that is functional and relevant to the client's needs.

Speech Therapy Build's Confidence & Success
When a child has a speech difficulty, they are generally aware of it. Children who speak differently from other children know that they do, and this can significantly erode their confidence. For example, when it comes to the classic issues — lisping, turning Rs into Ws, stuttering — speech-language therapy makes an enormous difference to a child's confidence. Some of these issues may seem cute at five years of age, but at 10 these problems are not.
Some children who are late talkers have a persisting language delay or language impairment that follows them year to year. Such children develop language skills at a much slower rate and often continue to lag behind other children in language and academic performance over the long term. A language impairment typically follows into adult hood and can impact on access to post-secondary education and opportunities for work.
If your child seems to be having trouble with speaking clearly, answering questions, telling a story or socializing at school and you know that they have a speech issue then enrolling them in speech therapy is recommended.
Improved communication builds confidence.
