Nature and Context

Because aphasia effects a person's ability to communicate, people who suffer from it often feel alone. Helping them recover their communication skills, through a virtual environment and therapy can help them make connections even before they are fully healed. Speech and language therapists know technology can reach people who have previously been considered unreachable.
