Got Social in your Support Group?

Not being able to speak is not the same thing as not having anything to say. For many, living with aphasia equates to a constant struggle for communication, and social isolation can be a primary concern for people with communication and/or mobility challenges.

With these challenges in mind, Lingraphica created the TalkPath News Facebook group: a social media networking group for stroke survivors, people living with aphasia, their family members, and professionals in the field.
