About one-third of stroke survivors are left with aphasia. This is a language disorder that disrupts the production and comprehension of speech, as well as reading and writing.

On 24 February 2015, researchers at City University launched The CommuniCATE project, looking at enhancing Communication in Aphasia through Technology and Education.
Aphasia is a long-term condition and many people will continue to need support for several years after its onset. However, with the right tools and support, even someone with severe aphasia can continue to communicate effectively.
