Exercise is important, right? This is especially true if you’re recovering after a stroke and rebuilding strength. Stroke Survivor Fitness is a guide for combining exercise and speech, so you can literally “work out your words.” The workbook provides basic exercises for strength-building and stretching while addressing speech challenges.


From the author:

This practical and thorough guide illustrates basic exercises to strengthen your body, improve your balance, and stretch tight muscles. Plus, Work Out Your Words activities introduce new ways to meet speech and cognitive challenges. This guide includes exercises and activities that were developed for Stroke Survivor Fitness classes. Our model, John Dobbin, is a stroke survivor with aphasia and a long-time class member. Everything you need to know about how to do each exercise in this book can be found on a single page.
