“I listened to your podcast last night. It was inspiring to hear your story and positive attitude, Tom. I really was delighted to learn more about your story and particularly your efforts to promote the concept of advocacy. I like the term, “stroke educator”. I also appreciated how you expressed the importance of the SLP planning for the individual with aphasia to take charge of their practice and ongoing recovery. Carol Dow Richards speaks to this as well. It was an informative and enthusiastic conversation. Thank you for sharing your time with the Aphasia Conversations Podcast team. I thought you and Katie had such a nice rapport. It was a pleasure to listen to every minute of the show. Hats off to you both.”
