Aphasia

“Aphasia is a language disorder that affects the ability to communicate. It’s most often caused by strokes that occur in areas of the brain that control speech and language. Brain injuries resulting in aphasia may also arise from head trauma, brain tumors, or infections. Aphasia does not affect intelligence.
