The Aphasia Institute has limited capacity. We do not routinely analyze data for other organizations.

It is very challenging to get statistics about aphasia.  For our purposes, we often extrapolate from stroke data, as stroke is a leading cause of aphasia. (Other brain conditions can also result in aphasia, such as traumatic brain injuries, brain tumours, dementia, or primary progressive aphasia.)

"Thank you so much for your accommodation of our presentation and study recruitment efforts! We got much more interest than we ever thought we would, and enough volunteers to keep us busy for a couple of years! ...Thank you for your help with everything! I am really happy to have the Aphasia Institute as a partner in our research. "
