Did you know that June is Aphasia Awareness Month?
Join us in spreading awareness and honoring the lives of people with aphasia by downloading our free ebook Living with Aphasia: Life After a Stroke. We offer this to-the-point ebook since quick knowledge-gathering is one of the most important aphasia activities following diagnosis.
In the 100% free-to-access, 10-page overview, we discuss what aphasia is, the kinds of challenges associated with it, and statistics on its prevalence. We review the most prominent causes of aphasia; types and severities of the communication disorder; and different therapies used to treat it. We show you how to integrate therapy with daily life for better speech after stroke, along with advice for interpersonal relationships: balancing the healthy role of family with ways you can set boundaries.
In Living With Aphasia, we ultimately stress the importance of learning communication (as with Supported Conversation for Aphasia™, which we teach in our two-day, family-focused aphasia group workshop “I Have Aphasia – Now What?™”). We don’t want to just present facts but answer common questions, such as how to stay active, how to keep improving, and how to keep communicating – supporting the development of your language processing and speech after stroke.
This just-published, free ebook is intended as an engaging and interactive tool that people with aphasia and their loved ones can use to make their lives with the condition easier and more fulfilling. It includes self-assessments to help determine what type of aphasia you might have and whether your current therapy is the best approach for you.
