Who Develops Aphasia?

  • Aphasia most commonly results from stroke.  Aphasia also results from brain injury, such as after a car accident or fall.

  • People of all ages can have aphasia. 

  • Strokes are more common in older people, while brain injuries are more common in young adults.

  • Strokes and brain injuries can occur in babies (even before birth) and children, in addition to adults.

  • One third of all stroke survivors will have some degree of aphasia. 

  • Less common causes of aphasia are brain tumours and infections.

  • It is estimated that 40,000 people in Ontario, and over 100,000 people in Canada, are living with aphasia
