Suffering from a stroke is a scary situation, and it leaves survivors with plenty of challenges to overcome during the recovery process. One of the effects of stroke is aphasia - the loss of the ability to speak or understand speech - and it's one of the most frustrating to deal with. Aphasia can be extremely stressful for both the individual who had the stroke, as well as their family and friends. Speech is such a significant part of human interaction, and it's something that most people take for granted. It's hard to communicate if you've been dependent upon verbal communication and yours is suddenly impaired. Fortunately, some recovery from aphasia is possible, and there are still ways to effectively communicate, even with aphasia.
