“Hi Tom, I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to let you know we watched your YouTube video in Aphasia Group today. The group wanted to give their reaction and feedback about the video. Craig says “We all went crazy!” Kurt says “Crazy!” David says “I want more every week!” I too found the comments about therapists’ approaches to speech therapy to be very insightful and affirming. Talking about the end of therapy and life beyond therapy is a very tough but crucial conversation. I’ve learned that speech therapists should offer hope but be truthful about stroke recovery and living successfully with aphasia. Thank you so much for all you do! Can’t wait for the next video!”
