A friend had a head injury from a fall two years ago and has had some aphasia which the doctors told her would get better. It has not, and seems to be getting worse. She has one very interesting problem: she confuses he/she often using them interchangebly in the same sentence making her sentences difficult to understand. She will start by saying “she” when referring to a woman in a story she is telling and then switch to “he/him”. She has not had speech therapy since the head injury. Think it’s too late?

I would recommend that your friend be evaluated by a speech-language pathologist who has experience in dealing with indviduals with communication problems resulting from head injury. This professional would be able to determine whether your friend would benefit from additional speech therapy. If you need help finding aspeech-language pathologist in your area, contact the American Speech-Language-Hearing A1 (at http://www.asha.org or call them at 1-800-498-207.
Good luck
