Communication Disorders: Aphasia, Dysarthria, Apraxia
Aphasia is a communication disorder that affects a person’s ability to use and/or understand language, to read and/or to write.
Symptoms range from mild disturbances (such as naming a specific category of words) to very severe conditions whereby communication becomes almost impossible.
Dysarthria is a condition in which the muscles we use for speech are weak. It is often characterized by slurred or slow speech, speaking too loud or too quiet, too quick or in a monotone voice. Since disturbances in one or more aspects of speech can make it very difficult to be understood by others, dysarthria often has a strong impact on our social life.
Apraxia is a motor speech disorder affecting an individual's ability to translate conscious speech plans into motor plans, which results in limited and difficult speech ability.
People with apraxia have difficulty connecting speech ‘thoughts’ from the brain to the mouth.
