Problems with reading and calculation

Many individuals experience significant difficulties with reading and writing following a stroke. Common difficulties include; reading words or reading long paragraphs and understanding what you have read. Many individuals are unable to write at all following a stroke. Other individuals may have difficulty with spelling, planning or organising what they want to write or forming grammatical sentences.

Severe impairments of calculation often accompany aphasia, yet in some instances individuals retain good calculation in spite of the loss of language. Many people experience difficulties with time and money.
