Communication is the process by which information is received, interpreted, and retained; however, communication often breaks down as a result of brain injury. It has been estimated that there are 400,000 adults in the United States with some degree of communication loss from stroke, and each year another 20,000 people become similarly afflicted. The ability to transmit and/or receive information depends on visual and auditory comprehension and retention, reading comprehension, visual motor facility, and speech. These areas are so interrelated that a collapse in one often causes a breakdown in a closely connected ability.
