Why is Stroke Therapy Important
A stroke can be so severe that it causes temporary or permanent paralysis and impairs memory and cognitive functioning. Part of what these side effects can impact the most is a stroke patient's speech and communication capabilities.
Although it can be scary to face everyday activities without the ability to express thoughts and emotions easily or understand others, there is a way for patients to recover speech after a stroke through speech therapy.
Following a fall and suffering a brain injury, you may experience word-finding difficulties, frustration with remembering information, and impairment in communicating with others in everyday situations. You may also experience loss of literacy skills e.g the ability to read and write.
With careful planning, Bev assesses what your goals are for the future in terms of communication, memory, and literacy skills. Together we work to achieve those skills so you can become more independent and feel more confident in communicating your needs.

You can speak to Bev straightaway when you book a demo at a mutually convenient time online and we can discuss all your requirements then
Will Online input really help my child/adult?
