The Aphasia Institute has a long tradition of developing innovative ways to help healthcare professionals and the public better understand aphasia. That is why we’re proud to share our latest video, which we created with social impact agency Public Inc. to help you get “inside” the hearts and minds of people with aphasia. 

Spreading the word can change lives

These unscripted videos are of real people actually living with aphasia who have the courage to share their stories – what it’s like to feel afraid and alone in hospital – through the challenges of returning home and back to their community. This emotive video will show you what people with aphasia know but often have difficulty conveying. Please help us spread the word by sharing this link on your social channels!

Aphasia is a communication problem that masks a person’s inherent competence.  It is usually the lasting result of a stroke or brain injury, but may also be caused by other neurological conditions such as dementia or brain tumours. Aphasia is not well known or understood and may be classified as an ‘invisible’ disability.

"I’ve been working at the Aphasia Institute since early 2007 and I love my job. It's incredibly rewarding to work in a collaborative environment where I get to be part of life-changing work for people living with aphasia and the healthcare providers who serve them. I feel affirmed, encouraged and supported as we work together on innovative and dynamic initiatives that accomplish our mission and vision in new, creative and resourceful ways."
