Speech Therapy Techniques for Global Aphasia: Very little is written for the Caregiver, Parent, or even a speech language pathologist who wishes to learn simple speech and languagestimulation methods that are fun and practical and can be used at home without a lot of papers-materials. My College Programs DID NOT GIVE ME clear cut Speech Therapy Techniques for Global Aphasia!
The Universities I attended gave me the theories, not the methods to help people with aphasia speak. Had to find and create them on my own. Because of that I floundered at first. I tried all the latest and greatest, but was not happy with any of them! Therefore in the early years going speech therapy for aphasia was Not Fun! I don’t want you to experience the frustration, fear and anxiety that I did.
Speech Therapy Techniques for Global Aphasia
Theories are good, but they do not give the clinician or caregiver the methods or techniques to help the the person talk. Because there is little method taught at the University level, therapists are often ill prepared to deal with complex speaking situations like those found in moderate to profound aphasias and apraxias.
