To Whom It May Concern:
My mom recently suffered a stroke and was inflicted with aphasia. She has
progressed, but it?s been very slow. She speaks only Italian and is hear
ing impaired. Do you have any suggestions, are there kits in different lan
guages that we can send for and give to my mom to aid her in furthering her
progress? I wait any reply.

Thank you for inquiring as to what you can do to help your mom. I know your concern and support will be the proactive assistance that she needs so much. I am not aware of any “kits” done in any language and certainly, the therapy that your mom gets will need to be individualized and completed in her language. You do not mention if she lives here in America or in Italy or elsewhere…this will be important info in securing her the help that she needs…I would be sure there is adequate translation for the assessment and intervention plan.
Progress can seem very slow and it can become quite frustrating for her. (and for her family)… I encourage you to use the resources here, and in your community (look for a support group or email again the state/country and I will assist you in this. Stay positive and most importantly have your mom stay active and involved in the things she loves,…this is key in so many ways. Please feel free to give more info and I’ll see what I can do.
