The June 5 issue of ASHA Leader features Gabby Giffords, the Arizona Congresswoman who has aphasia after being shot in the head.
The same issue has an article about Melodic Intonation Therapy, or "singing therapy".
There is also an article about aphasia peer mentors, a person who has had aphasia for a long time who provides support to a person who has suffered aphasia recently.
During "Better Speech and Hearing Month", we salute all the dedicated professionals who help people with aphasia regain their ability to communicate.
