Snyder Center for Aphasia Life Enhancement (SCALE) members in
Baltimore, MD prepared “EMPOWER” for the Speaking Out
Conference in June 2010. The theme is “Empowering Others to Live
Well with Aphasia”. The acronym “Empower” is used to represent
seven ways that SCALE members live well with aphasia:
1) Engage yourself in everyday activities
2) Make new friends, community & relationships
3) Practice, patience and be positive
4) Other ways of doing things
5) Working on new interests, teaching others
6) Exercise & recreation
7) Religion…Keep the Faith
