The answer is no, it is not true! We at aphasiatoolbox® and many others have proven the idea of a patient plateau in aphasia recovery is a myth. If someone tells you that you have reached a plateau, don't walk away, run away. One interesting fact about the brain's neuroplasticity is that you can take advantage of it at any age and at any time after your stroke. Perhaps your rehabilitation program has plateaued for you, however, you can continue to improve:
- You need smart aphasia treatment that truly exploits your brain's neuroplasticity by challenging but not frustrating you.
- You need to address those cognitive and skills and fluent word recall that are essential for conversation.
- You need to become the pilot of your own recovery, working from your own memory and practicing on your own.
- Finally, you need an intensive program that offers hours of treatment, practice and interactions.
We can help you accomplish this from your own home with online telepractice treatment and practice.
