Aphasia Mentor asks a question

One Mentor asked a student this question:


Q: “Did reading Gordon’s response (see previous post) to Gillian’s questions help me to understand his perspective/journey more clearly?”


The student answered:


A: “After speaking to Gordon, and reading his response to Gillian’s question’s, it allowed me to:

  • Ask my own questions
  • Build on my knowledge and understanding of aphasia.

While I have experience interacting and learning from persons with Aphasia, I am always eager to learn more about:

  • Each person’s journey
  • The ways an SLP, their family, or friends have helped them in their recovery

It reinforces the need for:

  • Direct and consistent contact
  • Patience in communication
  • Enjoying and being comfortable with silence
  • Creating fun, positive learning environments”
