'Aphasia' is a communication disability caused by damage to the language processing centres of the brain.

An individual with aphasia may have difficulty understanding, talking, reading and writing, but their intelligence is not affected. The most common causes of aphasia are stroke and traumatic brain injury.

What is the Aphasia Rehabilitation CCRE?

The Centre for Clinical Research Excellence (CCRE) in Aphasia Rehabilitation is:

  •  an Australia-wide research program,

  • funded for five years by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).

The program seeks to develop the Australian Aphasia Rehabilitation Pathway, a set of guidelines for person-centred aphasia services.

With research, capacity building and community engagement as its foundations, the CCRE endeavours to investigate principles of neuroplasticity as they apply to aphasia rehabilitation and translate best research evidence into best practice for Australians living with aphasia.
