I think it served it purpose but how can one tell? The real helper is self motivation and someone to encourage use of the book.

Excellent Collection of Materials & Exercises! 19 Feb. 2008
By FaverollesFowl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb
As a family member of a stroke survivor who is dealing with expressive Aphasia, I found this book to be extremely helpful. It is written in easily understandable language, and organized in an order that is simple to follow. Yet there is nothing lacking in terms of practical and useful materials and exercises that will aid in the recovery process.

Not only are oral speech and language abilities addressed, but also writing ability and reading comprehension. This text also includes materials that will aid in rebuilding skills related to money, math and telling time. Exercises are all provided in bold, large print... making them very easy for family members and patients to read and use.

It is an unfortunate fact that many insurance companies refuse to pay for ongoing, intensive speech and language therapy for stroke survivors (beyond the first few weeks). After that time, many survivors receive only a minimal amount of S&L therapy, unless their family members willingly step in to assist. While it is definitely preferable to have post-stroke aphasia therapy outlined and over-seen by an actual SLP... this book provides the necessary guidance and materials that will allow families to supplement and continue forward with their loved one's therapy and recovery.

4 stars for content, 1 star for binding 24 Nov. 2012
By beangrower - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
As a speech pathologist working in home care with adults, this is one of my favorite books to use with my aphasic patients. However, the binding of the book is very poor quality and my $60 book is now falling apart.

Great book for the SLP 31 Mar. 2013
By Krista - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
This book is great for the SLP who is working with stroke patients. I wish this book were available in Spanish since there are many stroke patients living here in the USA who don't speak English and need our help to rehabilitate their native language. There are so many exercises included that the SLP or family member will not lack for ideas to help the disabled improve their reading, listening, speaking and writing skills. Good job, Ms Stryker!

Helping us get better at home 10 Sept. 2013
By Savvy Shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
Using this at home to help, in conjunction with speech therapy elsewhere. Very good practice, easy to follow exercise by exercise. If you "slip" and don't use it for a while, easy to pick back up later without a problem. Thank you to the authors for helping families to help their loved ones at home with this manual.

Great resource! 11 April 2014
By ANA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
This book is a great resource. The words are in big print and the binding is great to fold back. I love the organization in this book from basic to advanced treatment techniques. i also appreciate the articulation section in order to target a specific phoneme from word to sentence level.
