Aphasia is a communication disorder caused by damage to the parts of the brain that deal with language. It’s most often caused by a stroke, but can be caused by a number of traumatic brain injuries, too. Statistically speaking, more people suffer from Aphasia than Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease, for example — but many people simply haven’t heard of it.
Tonight on West Texas Talk our guest is Kitty Binek. She’s the Executive Director of the Aphasia Center of West Texas in Midland, and she joins us to talk about Aphasia, what her organization does, and about an upcoming fundraiser called Chocolate Decadence.
