In brief: Get back, where left

Speech defect/ loss, a very common finding after suffering from a stroke.
Usually a good recovery, with good speech therapy. It is just like getting back to childhood, learning again.

In brief: Re-training=Improve

Strokes can make it hard for us to speak.
The good news: speech therapy can help us regain our ability to speak. Think of it like this: if your muscles are paralyzed or weak, physical therapy helps your muscles move again & get stronger. Speech therapy is the same -- only for speaking. Good luck with recovery. You can do it!
