More than two million Americans are living with aphasia, a language disorder that commonly occurs after a stroke. Although aphasia is a chronic condition, those afflicted can continuously make gains in their ability to communicate.

Join Chaleece Sandberg, assistant professor of communication sciences and disorders in the College of Health and Human Development, to learn more about this promising research.
