This review is from: Aphasia Inside Out: Reflections on Communication Disability (Paperback)
This readable book from the House of Connect takes the aphasia therapist way beyond assessment and therapy aimed at the language impairment level only. Here we have insider views of life with aphasia with many positive aspects. Reading this book will remind those who work with people with aphasia that they are indeed whole people who happen to have an acquired language impairment but still have thoughts feelings and ideas to express in whichever way they can. The enlightened speech and language therapist (SLT) will look to using her/his skills to facilitate the expression of these aspects of the whole person. The section entitiled 'do I have green hair?' is a perhaps welcome reminder to the SLT to see his/her sessions from the client's viewpoint and to feel empowered to move away from standard screening tests and 'yes/no assessments' and engage more deeply with what the person with aphasia is trying to express, how they are doing it and how the SLT could help them to do it more satisfactorily.
