Aphasia After Stroke: What is it?

Discover aphasia through the voice of those affected by this adult communication disability, and learn about the resources available in Sarasota. Dr. Donna Polelle will make a presentation on aphasia at 9:30 a.m. Aug. 25 at Unitarian Universalist Church of Sarasota. Polelle will be assisted by Tom Boyle, Hank Prince and Rick Reese, who are managing aphasia recovery. Aphasia is more prevalent than ALS and Parkinson's disease, yet few people are aware of it. The presentation describes aphasia, its prevalence, characteristics and impact on persons and the community.
