One Aphasia Action: Day 16
One Aphasia Action is a set of small, actionable activities you can do from home that will help you retain speech progress.
Walking around your home may be a good exercise—we should all be getting up to move several times per day—but it’s kind of boring. You can make it more exciting by turning a simple walk into a speech activity. Go for a walk around your home five times and name a new thing with each loop. When you’re done, sit down with a paper and pen, computer, or a family member, and write or talk out a story using all five objects.
You can find all of the One Aphasia Action activities on this list. This works best if you start on Day 1 and work at your own pace, even if you’re finding this project long after it has started. Try every activity, even if you only do it once. Keep doing the activities you like, repeating them the next day along with the new activity, and drop the ones that don’t work for you.
