Aphasia is the term for language problems caused by brain damage, such as stroke or traumatic brain injury. Aphasia can make it difficult for people to express their thoughts in words, or to understand what others are saying.

Aphasia Ireland is a registered charity, formed with the sole aim of creating awareness and providing support for people with aphasia and those around them.
