June is aphasia awareness month, and Lingraphica is proud to be working with Aphasia Access to help provide a great opportunity for members of healthcare and rehab teams to network, learn, share, and act on “Maximizing Communication Access for People with Aphasia: An Interprofessional Approach Across Settings.”
Did you know nearly half of the 800,000 people diagnosed with aphasia annually will never fully recover functional communication? In a recent whitepaper, Aphasia Access estimates that as many as 2.5 million Americans currently live with aphasia. This is a staggering number of individuals struggling with daily communication and based on other variables — fatigue, comorbidity, and stress — are susceptible to frequent communication breakdowns. As speech-language pathologists (SLPs), our job is to assist with daily communication by arming individuals with tools that will help them augment or replace verbal speech.
