Aphasia makes it hard to speak thoughts and needs quickly or easily

Try: #ask simple questions that can be answered with a yes or no #ask a question and write a number of possible answers to it allow the Care recipient (cr) to see choices and pick out an answer #make questions easy to understand and answer speak so that what you are asking is clear #don’t assume that the cr doesn’t understand you if his or her side of a conversation is slow give the cr time to speak without trying to finish the cr cr’s sentences #check your understanding of what the cr is saying by repeating what you think the cr said and asking if you’ve understood the cr correctly #don’t hurry careful watching and listening will lessen the cr’s frustration and increase your understanding
