Work Out Your Words: A Stroke Survivor Fitness Class

For someone who has survived a stroke, getting regular exercise is vitally important. Standard fitness options may not be available or accessible, so Stroke Survivor Fitness classes were developed to accommodate a stroke survivor’s specific physical, neural, and emotional challenges.

Got Social Media in your Support Group?

Not being able to speak is not the same thing as not having anything to say. For many, living with aphasia equates to a constant struggle for communication, and social isolation can be a primary concern for people with communication and/or mobility challenges. Engaging with online communities such as news sites and social media allows people with aphasia to connect to one another and to the rest of the world, offering an otherwise unavailable outlet and channel of communication. With these challenges in mind, Lingraphica created the TalkPath News Facebook group: a social media networking group for stroke survivors, people living with aphasia, their family members, and professionals in the field.
