What Is Expressive Aphasia?

The website below gives a good general overview of what expressive aphasia is, it's causes, and known treatments. Expressive Aphasia is the inability to communicate with others through speech and written language. It is caused by damage to the brain, which can be caused by things such as strokes, head trauma, brain tumors, or dementia. The most effective treatment for this is to immediately start speech therapy. The treatment is very extensive, and generally patients will recover language skills but never fully regain the skills that involve expression. The following website gives a list of other websites that have more in depth information about expressive aphasia, including where and how to get help.
