Three experts on stroke recovery share their knowledge and advice for stroke survivors and their families.
Dealing with the onslaught of information about stroke can be confusing and overwhelming. And if you happen to be a stroke survivor with newly impaired language skills, it can be especially hard to comprehend everything your doctors, nurses, and specialists are telling you.
This book consists of the top 100 questions that survivors and their families ask, with answers from the top physicians and therapists in the country.

Includes answers to frequently asked questions such as:
· What is a stroke, and who is at risk for one?

· How does group therapy compare to individual therapy?
· What should a stroke survivor look for in a therapist?
