CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (Stroke Support Group, UVA-Healthsouth Rehab. Hospital, Friday, November 9, 2018, 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM hosted by Mark Evans, MS, CCC-SLP, Outpatient Speech Language Pathologist, UVA-Healthsouth Rehabilitation Hospital.)
I presented “Aphasia Recovery & Neuroplasticity” to over 25 PWA, family and caregivers, clinicians, and staff. The room was totally packed with people standing at the door! Good crowd! There were lots of questions including exercise, depression, extreme tiredness, recovery and the lifelong language practice for people with aphasia. I presented all three books of the Stroke Diary trilogy to the Stroke Support Group.
