APHASIA SPEECH THERAPY TALKING TEAM
WHAT IF YOUR LOVED ONE OR CLIENT SPEAKS MULTIPLE LANGUAGES?
A woman writes today about her husband who has a aphasia. She needs an aphasia speech therapy talking team. Subsequently he is bi-lingual and speaks two languages. One is Turkish, the native tongue, and the other is English. She writes asking for advice to help him talk at home. Unfortunately she only knows some simple phrases in Turkish and speaks English fluently. Most importantly the information that follows can be applied to almost any speaking situation. An Aphasia speech therapy talking team can be started for any person with aphasia who speaks one or more languages.
MY ADVICE TO HER
My advice is to find any friends or associates who may be able to stimulate his speech in Turkish and to possibly schedule “friend visits.” They can be scheduled in the mornings, early and late afternoons. Aphasia speech therapy talking teams are starting to catch on to help people with aphasia.
Accordingly, she will need to set up these “sessions’ while also making sure the others are familiar with The Teaching of Talking Method. She could either train them personally, or have them view her access to The Teaching of Talking Training Course. Our Teaching of Talking Training Course trains families, friends, teachers, spouses and therapists. They learn how to stimulate speech and language almost anywhere. It can be done!
Aphasia Speech Therapy Talking Team
In this case it must be a team project with daily scheduling and opportunities to stimulate speech and language. Knowlingly “Where there is a will, there is a way.” In addition I also suggest that his therapist learn The Teaching of Talking Method. This will intensify the stimulation and continuity in the approach to his speaking recovery. He is very stimulable.
OUR EXPERIENCE SETTING UP A TEAM IN THE UK
In the UK we work with families. I have the wonderful opportunity to train family and friends personally and to make sure they are competent in the method. Strategically they have around the clock stimulation from spouses, children, friends, paid therapy assistants and study partners.
Aphasia Speech Therapy Talking Team: How we do it!
Speech stimulation meetings at home can be fun. They are centered around autobiographical information, work vocabulary and interests. In addition they address personal fields of study and family interactions. Language is stimulated throughout the day and evening which is crucial for speech and language recovery.
