My mom had a stroke last february 2009 which left her with severe aphasia. She cannot read or write. She does say some words but is mostly garble. She does not know the proper words for things, but sometimes with hand gestures we understand. We think she understands us sometimes but she cannot express herself verbally. WE had her in out patient speech therapy for 1 visit and their conclusion was that because she could not recognize pictures and say them back or finish a phrase, that she was not a candidate for speech therapy. She also was not interested. She does do some chores she want to be very helpful . WE cannot leave her alone ever. Sometimes she surprises us and says a whole sentence. My question is this…. Do you think the speech assessment was accurate or should we continue to persue another facility? Is there hope for my mom?

Yes there is hope. You should try to look for the lap top computer covered by lots of ins. The program is Lingraphica. My husband had a TBI last Mar. 2009. He did go to outpatient speech thereapy and was a canidate. He surely has a alot of work ahead of him. He does not speek, write or read yet. He at times can have a full sentence, it seems to happen at night when he is relaxing, watching TV.
