"It’s Still Me!” is a 17-minute guide for people with aphasia and their loved ones, in order to help them learn how to communicate with each other more effectively. It explains what aphasia is, some basic brain function, how it feels to have aphasia, and demonstrates some ways to communicate without words. It acknowledges that the loss of words is devastating, both for those who have aphasia and for the people around them. More importantly, it also holds out hope for a rich and fulfilling future.
