National Aphasia Awareness Month: Resources

Recently we posted about National Aphasia Awareness Month, dedicated to an impairment of language that affects anything from speaking, to comprehending speech, to the ability to read or white. Any form of brain injury can result in aphasia, but the most common cause is stroke. There are at least 2 million Americans with aphasia, but awareness of the condition is limited. That's why we've put together this list of valuable resources for learning about Aphasia!
