Maywood center applauds advance of bill to aid

Aphasia is a language disorder that limits a person’s reading, writing and speaking abilities. People maintain their intellect, but struggle to communicate. The most common causes are a stroke or a traumatic brain injury.
“We have trouble getting aphasia known to the general public,” said Elaine Adler who co-founded the Adler Aphasia Center in Maywood with her husband Mike, who suffers from the disorder. “Over a million people in the United States have aphasia and yet it’s not tip-of-the-tongue information.”
Mike Adler was told he would never speak again after his stroke. He proved the doctors wrong, and wanted to help others afflicted with the condition.
The Adlers hope the commission will bring much-needed awareness and more funding for programs like theirs...Next

New group helps aphasia patients find their fun

Joe used to be the editor at Star Newspapers in Philadelphia. Each week, he was responsible for making sure the words in his papers — the Kensington Star, the Northern Liberties Star and the Fishtown Star — were correct.

But since Joe’s stroke, he has trouble with his own words because of a condition called aphasia, which makes it difficult for a person to say, process or recall language. The condition has left him unable to work, so he’s tried to find leisure activities in his community to help fill his free time.
