About the Book
The author’s stroke resulted in aphasia—the loss of language, neurological disabilities, and brain injury. Using new methods of therapy developed in part by the author, led to complete recovery. Rehabilitation included a diary, which he uses in this book to teach his processes and to show others the secrets of learning, relearning, and healing. The secret of recovery from aphasia isn’t a secret at all. Aphasia recovery is about the doing. The brain converts experience into plasticity—learning, by another name. The more practice, the more learning. Conventional speech therapy is a start. But recovery is a marathon, not a sprint. Enriched speech therapy provides the missing link. Exercise, evidence, feedback, and interaction equip you with the steps needed to go the distance.
