Dysphasia is often very frustrating both for patients, who see their communication skills as very limited, and for their caregivers and family members, especially if the patient has problems understanding and following instructions.

If someone begins to have speech problems, for example after a blow to the head or a fall, it is very important that they see a doctor immediately. Many of these difficulties can be overcome with adequate intervention by the Speech Therapist and the Psychologist .
