Free Workbook for Aphasia

Who doesn’t like free?

Some of you may have already found this excellent resource, as it’s been floating around online since 2014.   If that’s the case, kuddos! But it’s such a generous resource that I think it deserves some redundancy!

The Workbook for Aphasia is over 100 pages of tasks to stimulate language skills after a stroke or brain injury.   Credit goes to Cat R. Kenney, out of the Cleveland State University Speech and Hearing Lab, for creating this free downloadable resource for clinicians and people with aphasia (PWA).

Home Exercise Program

Families are often looking for concrete examples of how to continue language practice at home.  After reviewing and practicing conversational coaching strategies for functional situations many still want work to take home.

And we know therapy sessions should be interactive and engaging.

So where do worksheets fit in?

As an accessible tool for a home exercise program targeting language stimulation Completion of the exercises may keep patients motivated and encourage structured home practice throughout the week with family.

Good luck! Have any ideas how this workbook can be used to further elicit cognitive-linguistic skills in adults? Have any more free aphasia materials to share? Please comment below!

    Thank you for the free resource! My mom recently had a stroke and this is a great tool for us to work at home with her.

    I am a certified Speech Language Pathology Assistant and Special ed teacher supporting struggling learners in schools. My husband just had an ischemic stroke, and has global aphasia. I can’t believe this workbook is free and you don’t have to sign your life away to obtain it. Thank you so much. I have a few questions for an SLP and would prefer phone conversation. Would that be possible?
