Aphasia Journeys - A loss of WORDS, not INTELLIGENCE

Reviewed July 2014
Developed by: Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago - Aphasia Advocacy Group Developed by: Institute for Therapy through the Arts
Performed by members of the popular aphasia classes run by the RIC Center for Aphasia Research and Treatment, this video explores what it means to have aphasia. Through the metaphor of an “aphasia journey,” performers write and speak about the experience of aphasia, which is a loss of language that can be sustained because of certain types of strokes and brain injuries. The strong message, movingly delivered, is that aphasia means a loss of words, not a loss of intelligence.

Approx. 15 minutes.
