Chad Ruble: HI Carmen.. My mom has had it for about 12 and, honestly, she just had the best six month period of improvement since the period after her stroke. Also, she decided to work extra hard. So, stick with the speech therapists!
Chad Ruble: My mom had a major stroke 12 years ago that left her with significant aphasia. As a result, I have gotten very involved with the aphasia community here in NY. It's a tough condition and hard for people who aren't touched by it to understand. I'm glad that you found this and it inspires me to get some more interesting posts up.
Talk Aphasia: "aphasia recovery connection"can be a group that you should join on Facebook. They are a group of about 600 people, and they are very active in the community and www.oovoo.com.
Chad Ruble: Thanks Jeff for mentioning that. I am part of that group and enjoy sharing information there. They are a great bunch!
