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

Kids (and adults!) love to be tucked in with a story. Luckily, you can do that over FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom. Choose a book and read it aloud to a child. Or if reading is still difficult, have that child read to you.

If you’re running out of books in your home, check out new ones using Libby. Log in to the app with your library card and check out e-books at home while libraries are closed. Don’t forget to talk about the book afterward! Chatting about the book is the best part.

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.
