How Long Does it Take to Recover from Aphasia?

by Dr. Mona Greenfield, Aphasia Expert
January 11, 2018

Question: How long is the recovery process for those affected by aphasia?

Answer: Progress can happen for a long time after diagnosis. Continued stimulation and speech-language/ cognitive therapy facilitate improvement. Neuroplasticity of the brain provides new pathways for damaged language areas and improvements in speech and language skills.
