In brief: CVA disability
Some strokes affect the speech areas of the brain, causing inability to express speech, find appropriate words, or understand the words of others.
Obviously, any profession requiring efficient communication may be too overwhelming for such stroke victims. Speech therapy does help and the drug Ritalin (methylphenidate) may facilitate rehab.
