Recovery from aphasia


"Some people recover more than others."

In the first days and weeks following a stroke, a lot of changes can take place. Your brain is recovering from the stroke.

Some people recover more than others.

Some people recover their ability to communicate very quickly.

But for others recovery is a long, slow process.

You may never be able to communicate in the same way as you did before the stroke.

Aphasia often becomes less of a problem as time passes.

Many people get used to it and learn to live with it.

Many people with aphasia still see signs of progress, even years after their stroke.


"Recovery takes time."


"It's impossible to tell exactly how much or how quickly someone will recover."
