Aphasia- The Myth of the Plateau

Let's talk about what I hear a lot of people tell me, which is, I only have six months to get better or to make the most, and I really wanna make the most of that recovery period. So there is no set amount of time during which you can make progress. That means that at six months, you're not going to stop making progress just because it's been six months.

You can keep making progress if you keep doing the work you'll make progress. That's for the vast majority of people. That's what I see happen. I have many people come to me years post-stroke or brain injury, and they can keep making progress. Because they're not giving up, they're still working, their family's not giving up on them or whoever they have in their life. If they put in the work, they're almost certainly gonna see some progress.
