Aphasia Speaking for Itself
In Their Own Words: People with Aphasia & Friends (text compiled by the National Aphasia Association)
Sarah Scott had a stroke at a 18 and she acquired the same type of aphasia I have: Brocas Aphasia. Scott shows how aphasia can strike even vibrant, young people, and illustrates how certain therapies can dramatically improve rehabilitation. I recommend watching her succession of videos, recorded over several  years.
1 year after her stroke. 1.5 years later. 2 years. 2.5 years  3 years.
Aphasia Speaks- profiling Kristin, a 34-year-old physical therapist, who suffered a stroke in 2008
