Aphasia is a communication disorder due to brain damage. The sick person who has not had any problems with language functions, manifested difficulty in speaking or understanding speech, also has problems with writing and reading. Aphasia does not impair the person's intelligence. The patient knows what he wants to say, but cannot find the words he needs.
The inability to communicate with the surroundings, loss of ability to translate thoughts into words, it is an extremely traumatic experience. This leads to the isolation of a sick person from coming in and the whole society. It happens that even those closest neglect to establish a deeper contact, pushing a sick person to the margins of the family group, depreciating and ignoring his/her needs and opportunities, and even attributing the symptoms of aphasia low intelligence, mental illness, or bad will of a sick person.
