Description - Talking About Aphasia by Susie Parr
Aphasia is a language impairment which can result from a stroke. This volume draws on in-depth interviews with aphasic people to explore the experience of aphasia from the onset of stroke and loss of language to the gradual revelation of its long-term consequences. The interviewees describe the impact of aphasia on their employment, education, leisure activities, finances, personal relationships and identity. They also describe their changing needs and how well these have been met by health, social care and other services as well as the barriers they have encountered in everyday life.
