We kicked off our video series with a brief explanation of primary progressive aphasia. Today, we’re answering the question: What is Wernicke’s aphasia:
So What is Wernicke’s Aphasia?
As the video states, people with Wernicke’s aphasia can speak easily, but the words don’t always make sense. Their understanding of speech is impaired so their answers may not match the question. People with Wernicke’s aphasia may not know that they’re adding non-existent words into their sentences and may grow confused when other people don’t understand them.
The video provides background information about Wernicke’s aphasia as well as communication tips.
Thank you for helping us share these videos and get them out to the general public. We are so appreciative when you share them on social media platforms, direct email, or clinic newsletters. As we said at the end of our Aphasia Awareness Month video, we could all use more understanding in this world.
