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.

They are:

  1. Non-fluent variant of PPA
  2. Semantic variant of PPA
  3. Logopenic variant of PPA

For more information about PPA and dementia you can call the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500.
