Does aphasia affect a person's intelligence?

No. A person with aphasia has difficulty with using and understanding language and retrieving words and names, but the person's intelligence (thinking, remembering, attending, and recognizing) is intact. Because people with aphasia have difficulty communicating, some individuals with profoundly impaired language are mistakenly considered to be mentally challenged.
