What? I vahe pahasia?!?

This is a Finding Words story!

I had a stroke eight years ago. I was forty-three years old. I have aphasia and apraxia. I have been to 10 different rehab places and all of them have been very helpful. I been to Stanford, University of Michigan, Burke Rehab & Research hospital and many more.

I created a blog to help stroke survivors learn what I have learned. I am a member of Aphasia Recovery Connection. A Speech Therapist and I started an Aphasia Support group called Chit-Chat Aphasia Group. I created Bay Area Aphasia Circle. In this group people with aphasia meet others with aphasia.

I believe people with Aphasia need 4 things to improve, a Speech Therapy, strategies on how to operate out in the world, games (on a computer or in person) and talking with other people who have aphasia.
