An SLP’s Joy

The best part of working with people with aphasia, is being able to help them reconnect with their loved ones. Many people with aphasia are abruptly cut off from their family and friends. Being able to help them find alternative ways to communicate things like, “I love you” to their family members is very rewarding.

I love seeing the faces of both the person with aphasia and the caregiver light up when the patient communicates something they could not before.
