Communication challenges

Some people with aphasia may speak in short or incomplete sentences or longer sentences that are non-sensical. They also use unrecognisable words.

According to the Mayo Clinic, people with aphasia fall into one of three patterns.

  • Expressive aphasia: They can understand others but struggle to respond in complete sentences. They may say things like: "Walk park today."
  • Comprehensive aphasia: People speak in long, complex sentences that are non-sensical. They don't always know that people don't understand them.
  • Global aphasia. People have poor comprehension and a poor ability to form words.
