Stroke and Aphasia Recovery: Metaphors Help us Mend
Thomas G Broussard Jr
2022 FAPA President's Book Award: Silver: Health People with aphasia who have lost their language from a stroke can still get it back! This book contains 15 chapters with metaphorical stories-in words we can understand-that help us learn the self-directed process of recovery. A brain damaged by a stroke can still function well enough to rewire itself and create new brain matter. All it takes is the time and effort to learn the steps of recovery by experiencing the brain activities in action. If you (or someone in your family) have suffered a stroke with aphasia, and want to know what it takes to repair one's language, this book is for you!
