My mother was in a car accident 10-29-07. Since the accident she is no longer able to speak. She understands what she is told but has a hard time getting the words to come out. She has seen many different Dr’s. about this problem her neurologist suggested speech therapy and I was given the word aphasia. Since the accident my mother can not work due to her stuttering. Is there anything that can be done while we wait for an official diagnoses. I don’t want to waste anymore time if there is something her family can do to help.

I am so sorry to hear about your mother. I agree with the neurologist that your mother should see a speech-language pathologist. The speech-language pathologist that you choose should have experience in the diagnosis and treatment of speech and language disorders in adults. If you do not know of anyone in your area, you can search on the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association website at http://www.asha.org. I hope this information helps you and your family.
