Aphasia is a language disorder acquired secondary to an injury in the part of the brain responsible for language. Aphasia is very often caused by injury to the left hemisphere of the brain. Aphasia affects language comprehension, language production, reading and writing. There are several types of aphasia; the main divisions are fluent and non-fluent aphasia. The severity of aphasia depends on the extent and the location of the brain injury.
