The AAA Primary Progressive Aphasia Guide is now available!
Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is a rare type of dementia.
It is not the same as Alzheimer’s Disease.
It is sometimes called a language-led dementia. This is because language and communication are the main difficulties in the early- and mid-stages of the dementia. It usually starts very slowly.
PPA affects everyone differently.
There are three main types of primary progressive aphasia.
- Non-fluent variant of PPA
- Semantic variant of PPA
- Logopenic variant of PPA
For more information about PPA and dementia you can call the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500.
