Robin Hintz is a 12-year speech-language pathologist in Minneapolis, MN, who works with adult clients who have language and swallowing disorders due to acquired brain injury. She tried Lingraphica's family of apps several years ago with her clients, and she's been a big fan ever since.
Connecting people with aphasia to others and to tools that can help them can be tough. At Lingraphica, we want to make these burdens a bit lighter for caregivers, support group leaders, and those with aphasia. Check out our brand new webpage—Tools for Aphasia Support Groups—for some great resources to get you connected!
