Understanding and recovering from aphasia: the VERSE trial

February 01, 2019

Aphasia is a devastating condition following stroke which impacts all aspects of communication including speech, comprehension, reading and writing. New research undertaken by Edith Cowan University (ECU) has shown more than 80% of people with aphasia after stroke cannot access early aphasia therapy. This research has also revealed people treated with daily, intensive aphasia therapy have greater communication independence than those who receive less intensive or no therapy.

The VERSE study is a speech rehabilitation trial targeting people who have had a stroke and have aphasia. Read more on the ECU website.
