At Chatty Therapy, we are passionate about empowering caregivers and communities to support adults with communication difficulties. There are many reasons an adult may develop communication difficulties. Adults may lose their ability to use and understand language after strokes, brain injuries, surgery, and progressive diagnoses such as Parkinson's Disease, multiple sclerosis or brain tumours.


Strokes and brain injuries are common causes for adults to acquire communication challenges. The loss of language experienced by these individuals is called aphasia. By using simple strategies for communicating with people with aphasia, you can help your loved one's voice be heard. Communication is a two way street.
