Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide and almost 350,000 stroke survivors have aphasia in the UK1. Depending on the severity, aphasia may affect oral communication, auditory, writing, reading comprehension and everyday communication2-3. Long-term communication impairment of up to a year affects almost three quatres of stroke patients and there is limited spontaneous communication recovery after this time2. Although there is a plethora of research on this topic, there is limited research evidence on potential recovery across the various impaired language domains and demography for people affected with aphasia.
