Aphasia on the TODAY Show
Aphasia was recently the topic of discussion on the TODAY show when Maria Shriver spoke with Lauren Marks, author of the current selection for the NAA’s online book club, A Stitch of Time.
Speaking About Aphasia on the TODAY Show
Lauren describes aphasia as the sensation of being “locked out of your own house.” You’re still yourself, but you can’t access yourself anymore. She talks with Shriver about how life changed after her aneurysm. Even a decade later, she still has lingering affects of aphasia and shows off one of her text-to-speech work-arounds.
