Language involves the expression and understanding of ideas – spoken or written.
Language impairments in adults occur due to degenerative neurological conditions, damage to the brain (stroke, traumatic brain injury) or neuro-developmental disorders. Difficulty communicating causes frustration, anger, embarrassment and social isolation. Acquired language impairments include aphasia and cognitive communication impairments.
Rehab Connection’s consultative approach with clients, families, carers and work colleagues can help reduce, the daily impact of language impairment in adults.
Who can benefit
Adults, whose daily life is impacted by difficulty finding words, speaking in sentences understanding conversations, reading, problem solving, and more.
