Hi zela,


Thank you for the question.

Sign language can be used as an alternative to communication, for example in people who are deaf and / or speech impaired. Of course, this sign language ability cannot be obtained instantly, but must go through a long learning process for weeks, months, even years.


If a person who was previously accustomed to communicating with sign language, then he can no longer smoothly display the sign language after an accident, then the trigger could be a disorder in the brain and spine (such as due to bleeding, death of certain brain tissue, nerve nerves), interference with his hands (as a result of muscle atrophy, arthritis, cracks or broken bones), psychological disorders (such as depression), and so on.


Without checking directly, it is certainly difficult to ascertain exactly what factors triggered the person's complaint. Our advice, to find out the cause of the complaint as well as what is the right treatment to overcome it, you should check with the doctor nearest you .. If necessary, the person can later be referred to a medical rehabilitation doctor, neurologist, and even a psychiatrist to undergo further treatment.


Hope this helps ...
