Aphasia is a language disorder that can impair a person's speech and make it hard to understand the speech of others. It can also impair reading and writing abilities. Aphasia is a common result of a stroke, head injury or brain disease. Ironically, many people know of someone who has aphasia but they have never heard of the word 'Aphasia'.
At York-Durham Aphasia Centre (YDAC) we offer services and programs for people touched by aphasia and related communication disorders. Our group communication programs offer clients a way to re-enter community life, one step at a time. We reach out to local citizens and professionals to encourage their support and involvement. On a wider scale, our agency promotes aphasia awareness, education and research. YDAC helps to knit these local and wider-ranging groups and interests into a broad aphasia community.
