New Therapy Method for Expressive Aphasia is Discovered

Can Apps Help Aphasia Victims as Well as More Intensive Therapy?

Setting Speech Therapy Goals for Aphasia is crucial for people with speaking difficulties. Speech Therapy Goals for Aphasia remind me of photographers of old who used to have a stuffed birdie on the end of a stick.  When a client for photography would come to the studio, the photographer would make sure everything was just so; everyone dressed appropriately, and shirts tucked in. Much the same happens when setting goals.  I had the pleasure of befriending Yvonne last evening and I have found that she speaks with much wisdom. Wisdom that every therapist [...]
