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

Every morning, the New York Times Crossword App delivers a fun, wordy treat called the Mini. It’s a five-by-five crossword puzzle, usually with under 10 clues or words to fill in. It’s the perfect size and the perfect difficulty. It’s usually the same level as a Monday puzzle, just in miniature.

Don’t worry about the timer. Just enjoy this brain puzzle. You can access it via the app, the web-version of the New York Times, or in one of their numerous books of mini puzzles.

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.
