Traumatic Brain Injury

Communication and Traumatic Brain Injury


Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can have a profound impact on communication. Sometimes these difficulties are apparent (e.g., word finding, reading difficulties), and other times they are more subtle or difficult to describe (e.g., trouble with conversations, taking the perspective of others). A TBI may affect speech/pronunciation, word finding, sentence formulation, cognitive-communication (e.g., verbal reasoning, planning), and social communication (e.g., conversation skills, reading nonverbal signals).
