Aphasia

Aphasia is a communication disorder that affects a person's ability to speak, read, write, and/or understand as the result of a stroke or brain damage.  A person with non-fluent aphasia has "choppy" speech and difficulty finding the words, but has strong comprehension.  A person with fluent aphasia, on the other hand, has poor comprehension and speech is more fluid.  Although speech is fluid in fluent aphasia, the words used may be incorrect or made up.
