Remember Sarah Scott? Her latest video was recorded to be shown at an aphasia conference in Australia. In it, she talks about so many things that are relevant to my thesis!
She talks about how life took a very unexpected turn when she had her stroke, and how she had to think differently about her future. She talks about how digital technology is decisive for her to communicate with others, because it enables her to convert speech into text and send it to people. She talks about people’s lacking awareness about the fact that young people can have strokes, and the importance of media representations of people with aphasia.
All those aspects of living with aphasia are included in my thesis. Coming up!
