When the Words Away Went: A new documentary about aphasia
A new documentary all about aphasia is coming out soon. 40% of stroke survivors have aphasia. They struggle to communicate.
Aphasia can have a huge impact on stroke survivors and their loved ones.
It damages the communication areas of your brain.
People with aphasia can recover over time and find new ways to communicate.
But not a lot of people know what aphasia is.
That's why we've produced a new documentary.
When the Words Away Went
Our new documentary follows a group of stroke survivors with aphasia.
They each have a goal they are working towards.
The documentary follows them in their recovery.
It shows how hard it can be to live in a world that doesn't understand their condition.
You can watch the trailer below.
The documentary will air on the 26 May here.
