Coping With Aphasia

I'm going to do something very different this week. I'm just going to give you links to articles and videos of Stroke Survivors coping with Aphasia and Apraxia. As you brows these you will see more videos on the pages you link to. I encourage you to view these also to gain additional insight into this issue many Stroke Survivors face. 

                                         What Is Aphasia

                                4 Things Aphasia Taught Me

                                 David Coping with Aphasia

                                    Ivan Coping with Aphasia

                              Interviews with Aphasia Sufferers

I hope this not only helps you see but to understand what Aphasia sufferers are experiencing. For those of you who are suffering from Aphasia I hope this shows you that you are not alone and there is hope.  For those who do not have Aphasia I hope this teaches you to be patient, to listen, and to let the person express themselves as best as they can. Patience, understanding their frustration, and respect is what need from us.
