Seeking Speech Therapist

Seeking Speech Therapist/Pathologist for cognitively impaired adult male with Aphasia

Type: Speech-Language Pathology
Location: Los Angeles, CA 90049
Description: I am interested in a speech pathologist for my husband. He is young 72 year old and has aphasia due to a neuro disease that has affected the language center of the brain. He is unable now to get a picture in his brain of words identifying something. Thus, for example, the word Apple spoken to him has no meaning to him as his mind does not picture what it is, and therefore he may not know what you are describing. In other words, he can't conceptualize what you are saying. By the same token, while he speaks, he is using unintelligible words to describe the object(s) in his sentences , although he thinks he is saying what he intended to say. I would like a therapist who believes he or she could be help him some way to make the right associations between words and objects and thus improve his ability to understand and to be understood.

If you are interested, please contact me my e-mail to set up a time to meet with you. We are in the West Los Angeles area.

Thank you.
