Aphasia Awareness among the Honolulu Chinese Population
Chinese residents of Hawai‘i were surveyed regarding their knowledge about aphasia. Only 14 of 85 respondents had heard the term aphasia, and only three were able to provide acceptable suggestions for facilitating communication with people who have aphasia. These findings highlight the need for community education about aphasia to facilitate community re-entry for Chinese survivors of stroke and aphasia.
