This is another tip in our series of one-minute videos aimed at delivering quick ideas you can use to make your life a little easier if you have aphasia. Things are a little different for Aphasia Awareness Month. All of our videos this month are one-minute actions you can take to practice speech from home. In fact, this was one of our One Aphasia Action tips from this past spring.
In this tip, we give you another game you can play daily to practice speech.

Write out all of the letters of the alphabet in a single column, and then come up with a word that starts with each letter.
You can make it easier by only listing common letters — such as M, S, R, T, P, L, or N — or only vowels. But you can also make it harder by having to either name or write more than one word per letter.
Mix it up by also creating categories. For instance, write “Songs” at the top of your alphabet list and try to come up with a song title for each letter.
You can also turn this into a game by taking turns with a communication partner. You name A, they name B, and so on until you get to the end of the list.
This is just one thing you can do to practice speech from the comfort of your own home.
