When a stroke occurs in the“language hemisphere,”the resulting injury often affects the ability to
communicate in writing. It may become difﬁcult to recall the spelling of words, or how to put the words in correct order to make sentences.
In some cases, it is even challenging to recall how to form the letters that make up words. These writing impairments are referred to as agraphia or dysgraphia.
