So excited! It's really going to happen! Updated 10/18/16 7:45pm


I just ordered my Podcast equipment!

Excited and scared at the same time!

I mean I'm a half paralyzed wheelchair bound stroke survivor with a speech deficit!

I'm going to do what? 

A Podcast! WHAT? LOL 

What speech deficit does Aaron have? Dysarthria.

My plan is to find an SLP (Speech Language Pathologist) not just to interview but to work on improving my speech for my Podcast. 
I currently know two stellar SLP's. Mark Ittleman author of "The teaching of talking method" and Rebecca Kipling in the United Kingdom. Founder of Speech Therapy Center in the UK. 
(I'll update you as I go).

I will be putting myself out there in an extremely uncomfortable place because I must recover! 

I want to encourage each one of you stroke and brain injury survivors to do the same in your own way. Put yourself in that uncomfortable situation. Like me, it's going to cause you to recover a little more. I believe as survivors we put ourselves in uncomfortable situations like hanging with family or friends or maybe it's going to that family get together you would normally stay at home for. Putting ourselves out there forces our brain's neuroplastic quality to fire up.
