I don’t know what it is…but I just love speaking at schools. I spoke for exactly 30 minutes (I timed myself) and then Jill answered questions for 45 minutes. I must say, Jill was phenomenal at answering all the different questions that the audience had. When we spoke later, Jill and I were very impressed with the thought process questions.
We were speaking to Speech Pathologists. Unfortunately, that was the ONLY thing I didn’t receive much help when I was in rehab. When I first had the stroke, we were working on making me stand up, to get rid of that cane, and to be able to use the right side of my body again. We figured, speech would come back. We were wrong! Who knew! I am a month away from the 7 year mark …and I STILL have to work on my speech.
I am involved with an Aphasia group, who is on the east coast. Currently, I am working on a few things and I will let you know of my progress. I am really excited! If you have Aphasia, the you need to talk will Bill Connors. The guy is amazing!
