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

Positivity creates more positivity, especially when you pass it to another person. Think of a positive thought. It can be a memory from the past, something a friend or family said that made you smile, or hopes about the future. Those moments are the light at the end of this tunnel, reminding you that there is a world out there after this crisis is done. Tell someone the positive thought and enjoy it a second time while practicing your speech.

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.
