How to Talk With AphasiaBook - 2004
Ed Bas is a journalist, a father, a runner, and an aphasic survivor. He had a stroke in June 2002. He began writing this book one week after his stroke and continued working on it for the following two years. Barkin' Dog: How to Talk with Aphasia is recommended for people who have aphasia and their families. Aphasia sufferers are those who have lost some of their ability to speak or read language due to a stroke. Losing the ability to communicate is a tremendous dilemma. Mr. Bas courageously and frankly discusses reading, writing, exercise, diet, medicine, computers/software, contacts, suffering and loving for stroke victors.
