This update comes from Pastor Joe’s wife Lynn as they begin their time at the University of Michigan Speech Aphasia Camp:
Day 1 of Aphasia Camp down! Wow, how I prayed to write that! The program is incredible! The therapists are wonderful and aphasia isn’t a mystery here. I read through the history of this program and it has evolved and changed with the times over its 80 year life; starting as a camp and then a program that required you to board for 10 weeks, and now outpatient and specialized to each person. They know aphasia. Joe had 3 hours back to back of individual therapy in the morning, lunch break and then another individual session and a group session. Needless to say, he’s in bed right now resting that brain.
