Difficulty speaking after stroke is common
When someone is recovering from a stroke, there are both physical and cognitive challenges to overcome.
Aphasia doesn’t affect intelligence, but people with this condition might have trouble speaking or finding the right words. They may also have problems understanding conversations, reading, writing, and using numbers.
