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

You’re halfway through the 30 days, and it’s time for a joke! Jokes are hard to tell, even when speech comes easily. But they’re doubly hard for people with aphasia because they use language in a funny way. Knock Knock jokes are perfect for practicing speech because they repeat. You can find plenty of Knock Knock jokes online as well as zippy one-liners. Or better yet, make up your own!

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.
