In addition to several programs designed to improve quality of life for people with aphasia and their care partners, Aphasia Recovery Connection offers numerous resources to further support people on their road to recovery. Many of the following are available for free, so click around to explore what we have to offer.
Aphasia is a complex condition that is often misunderstood, even within the aphasia community. We recommend a couple of books, written or co-authored by our founding members, that provide a first-hand perspective on coping with aphasia and recovering from stroke, traumatic brain injury, or a brain tumor. These books offer a detailed look at how the brain works to recover after injury.
