0 Reviews
This innovative new book brings together a number of different perspectives on aphasia, a communication impairment that can follow stroke. Contributors reflect on and explore aspects of living with aphasia that have little place in conventional academic discourse. Accordingly, the chapters cover a range of issues, for example aphasia and the Internet, time and poetry.
