Aphasia is s peach disorder that occurs due to stroke, accidents or other brain damages. People with aphasia can think and feel normally but they are unable to communicate their thoughts and feelings. According to the report of the Hungarian Ombudsman „presently there is no proper support, care and rehabilitation system in Hungary for people with aphasia”. The aim of the project is to improve the communication and speech skills of patients with aphasia, strengthen their interest representation, and decrease social marginalisation. The direct target group is people with aphasia living in or near Budapest, some of them having additional disabilities. Participants receive individualized, complex support, by various therapeutic methods and counselling. Project results improve their social situation and quality of life, while decreasing their social exclusion.
