Aphasia is a disruption in the language processes following a brain injury, most commonly from a cerebral vascular accident (CVA), or stroke. Aphasia can affect either the comprehension or the expression abilities of a person or can affect both areas. Strokes can occur anywhere within the brain with differing results based upon the location of damage. The varying results can range from very mild to very severe. Other possible results from stroke are difficulties with swallowing or motor speech.
