Stuttering or Babbling After a Stroke

by Sheila Sanford
(Houston, Texas. 77065)

My husband had a minor stroke at the end of July. He has had some speech problems which he had therapy for. However, even since the therapy, sometimes (not always) he will get stuck trying to get his words out and his speech will sound like a bunch of babbling that doesn't make any sense.

This is very frustrating for him. Is this a normal thing that can happen from a stroke, and what are your suggestions for when he gets stuck Iinone of these. H

Thank you
