Aphasia is an impairment of language due to brain injury, affecting auditory comprehension, speech, reading and writing. It doesn’t, however, affect intelligence. The IPA (Portuguese Institute of Aphasia) aims at improving the quality of life of people with aphasia and of their families, working not only with them but with healthcare professionals and the community in general. The establishment of a hotline, expansion of international therapeutic approaches with validated results (Life Participation Approach to Aphasia), the creation of specialised courses for professionals, combination of speech therapy with the social engagement of people with aphasia and the creation of a national literacy programme for aphasia are just some of the initiatives this projects aims to implement.
