Apraxia and aphasia are communication disorders that can impact an individual’s participation in everyday life. These disorders can be devastating for both the person affected as well as his/her family members. Fortunately, there are support groups that guide these individuals and their families through difficulties they may encounter—like the Staten Island Apraxia and Aphasia Support Group.

Life changes suddenly after a stroke. Survivors often face a new reality consisting of difficulty walking, talking, and caring for themselves. As such, caregivers including a spouse, a neighbor, or a grandchild typically step in to administer care and handle household chores for the survivor. While adjustment is difficult for the person with aphasia, it can be taxing on the family, too.
Connecting people with aphasia to others and to tools that can help them can be tough. At Lingraphica, we want to make these burdens a bit lighter for caregivers, support group leaders, and those with aphasia.
