One Aphasia Action is a set of small, actionable activities you can do from home that will help you retain speech progress.

What’s more enjoyable than reading a story or article? Reading a story or article and talking about it. Make a plan with a friend or family member to form a reading club for two. You can start with short articles or choose the same paper book or audiobook. Set up breaks to talk about what you’ve read. It can be as simple as asking or answering yes/no questions about the ideas in the written piece. It’s easy to choose things you’re both interested in talking about if it’s a book club for two.

You can find all of the One Aphasia Action activities on this list. This works best if you start on Day 1 and work at your own pace, even if you’re finding this project long after it has started. Try every activity, even if you only do it once. Keep doing the activities you like, repeating them the next day along with the new activity, and drop the ones that don’t work for you.
