Hal Eisner from the In Depth program at KTTV in Los Angeles interviewed Roberta Elman, Ph.D., President & Founder of the Aphasia Center of California (ACC) about aphasia. Dr. Elman describes aphasia, a language disorder, and distinguishes it from disorders that impact intellect. She also discusses different aphasia types and causes and treatment for aphasia. Dr. Elman says that most people who are living with aphasia can improve over time when treated by an experienced speech-language pathologist. People with aphasia can lead rich and meaningful lives — it is vital for them to meet others living with aphasia in order to be part of a community and reduce social isolation.
