Degenerative diseases and injuries affect an adult’s communication in many ways. Adults who have had a stroke or have a degenerative disease often have some residual effects such as: voice problems, dysarthria, dyspraxia, dysphagia (swallowing problems). Speech Pathologists are heavily involved with diagnosing and providing treatment for these difficulties. As an adult, communication is an essential part of everyday life and it is important following a neurological event that people are supported to continue socialising and interacting as they would have done before the injury or diagnosis.
