What Is Expressive Aphasia and What Causes It?
Expressive aphasia, also known as Broca’s aphasia, is a language disorder caused by damage to parts of the brain that control speaking and language comprehension. It can be triggered by certain medical conditions or brain injuries.
Aphasia harms a person’s ability to use and understand words. The effects of aphasia may get better over time, but in most cases, the symptoms will never completely go away.
Aphasia can be very distressing for its victims, and it’s also hard on their close friends and relatives. But there are ways to help people cope with aphasia.

There are so many sports in which you can, and should, use a helmet. From biking to horse riding to skiing, helmets play an important role in keeping us safe.
