Recently, public radio station WHYY broadcast a segment taking a deep look at different aspects of language. They interviewed experts to shed light on the process of language learning and what happens when a person’s ability to communicate is disrupted.
Aphasia is an acquired language impairment that commonly affects people after stroke. People with aphasia may have challenges in remembering and expressing words. More than two million Americans are affected by aphasia, and the MossRehab Aphasia Center is a world class center dedicated to meeting the long-term communication and psychosocial needs of people with aphasia.
In this radio segment, expert clinicians and scientists including MossRehab’s Karen R. Cohen, MSPA, CCC-SLP, and Sharon Antonucci, PhD, CCC-SLP, share their expertise.
