What is aphasia? Aphasia is a communication disability. Aphasia can affect how you speak, understand, read and write. The Band Trust funded the Stroke Assocation to make films about stroke and aphasia. The films explain what stroke is, how it is treated, and living well after a stroke. The films are for people who have aphasia. Click on the icons below to view the films. If you want to more about communication after stroke, please go to the Communication Advice and information page. We would like to thank: All who created designed and tested the images used in these films. Ruth Herbert, Caroline Haw, Emma Gregory, Catherine Brown and Shelagh Brumfitt at the University of Sheffield. Jon Dale of Transmit Creative Ltd. People with aphasia and their families who helped us develop the images and make these short films. Staff and volunteers at the Stroke Association for their advice and expertise. The Band Trust for funding work on aphasia friendly content for My Stroke Guide.
