Editorial Reviews

Book Description

An indispensable tool for clinicians and users that has been fully updated and reformatted in a user-friendly manner.

From the Publisher

Susan Howell Brubaker has revised the classic Workbook for Aphasia to update the language and situations to better serve twenty-first-century patients. Since its first edition in 1978, this highly recognizable "blue book" has been used by speech-language pathologists as a treatment tool both in sessions and as a home-program supplement, with target populations ranging from adults to early adolescents. The exercises encompass basic-to-higher-level tasks addressing reading, graphics, word retrieval, formulation, and a variety of other language skills. The new edition responds to the comments and suggestions of longtime users with several changes to the content and format of the book. The most visible change is the ring binder that will allow for easy copying of treatment materials for individual patients. Inside the workbook, many questions have been revised and others have been added. The Answer Key to Selected Exercises now contains more exercises and is also part of the text, in its own easy-to-find section of the binder. In addition, the book’s new, larger font and improved spacing better enables patients with visual difficulties to read the text. This revised and updated third edition will enhance the ability of speech-language pathologists to address the language-impaired population within their practices.

If a loved one suffers from aphasia, this is the best work book to have. We worked with several speech pathologists over the last two months and every one of them recommendeded it as one of the best work books. In fact, they all had one on their own desks and used it to work with patients. I also recommend BungalowSoftware.com (suggested by stroke support groups) as a resource for aphasia / apraxia sufferers. This allows them to work alone - as it let's the patient know when an answer is correct or incorrect. Some of the software models words for patients, prompts them to repeat it and lets patients record and play back their speech. It also tracks patients' progress, so that the caregiver can go over it afterwards and address any weak points. There are some free resources online as well. Search for "aphasia exercises" online to find some good ones. I got very good recommendations from a support group of stroke victims and caregivers: strokesurvivors@yahoogroups.com. Here is their link: [...] ... They have a lot of free resources. It's a great place to ask questions and connect with those who have gone through this difficult experience. Well, I hope this helps. Best of luck ... Sibylle

I am a speech/language pathologist who has used many sections of this book during therapy sessions. There are verbal expressive sections as well as written exercises. I have adapted sections to use in group therapy sessions. I find this book very useful and would recommend it to any working SLP or family member working at home with a person recovering from stroke and aphasia.

My wife has been using this and other workbooks, after a stroke last month. I showed this workbook to her speech therapy teacher and the teacher said it was a good one and would be very useful to do. We have been going through it.
Therapy teachers like to go to a section that challanges the paitent, but we are also doing the other sections as general exercise.
Also, this is one of the workbooks that the therapy teacher uses for all other patients.

The workbook is very beneficial for stroke survivors. There is a variety of lessons that are simple to more challenging. So where ever the stroke survivor is at in his/her recovery, they can start at any section. My mother really enjoys using this workbook. Its a little expensive but well worth every dollar.

My husband suffered a stroke on October 1st and initially received speech therapy, however upon returning to our small city we found there were no speech therapists available within a 200 mile radius.
We ordered the Workbook for Aphasia and were delighted with the quantity and quality of the exercises in the book. The Workbook for Aphasia: Exercises for Expressive And Receptive Language Functioning (William Beaumont Hospital has been a tremendous help to my husband and he can now carry on a normal conversation with very little problem finding words.
The exercises in this book are of equal or greater quality than those of a professional speech therapist.

The book is quite nice. It comes in a 3 ring binder and has 8 or 10 tabs of exercises and was a nicer presentation than I had anticipated. Perhaps I didn't read the description too thoroughly but one should note it is mostly medium to advanced exercises. For us, there aren't enough of the easy category. For example, one whole tab (the biggest section) has broken words and scrambled words. Good "brain teasers" for an adult prior to brain cancer, but when someone is trying to re-learn at a beginner level as an adult, you need the words to be correct, not already messed up. Unfortunately that is not the only section and the majority of book is too advanced for my mom. This makes it a touchy subject because she sees how big the book is, yet it's very hard to give her an exercise to do, because we've already done the easier ones (even those are challenging for her). So, my recommendation goes both ways. I gave it high stars because for certain people it is fantastic and well worth it (it would be 5 stars), but for some people to is too challenging and causes problems (frustration and tears) because it is too difficult and can make someone feel even worse. It know that is not the intention, but in our case its true.

I bought this book after my husband suffered a stroke and had aphasia which I had never ever heard that word. It helped us to overcome a lot of problems. I think it is a very good exercise book for someone in that condition and if you really work hard in it, you would see benefits. At least I would hope the best for anyone under these circumstances. It was a needed item at the time and proved most useful.

The content is good and the directions are easy to follow. I bought this for my father so that he can continue speech therapy at home after a massive stroke. This looks easy to follow and I think that my mother will be able to work with him every day by giving him a couple of pages to do. Unfortunately, they are in another state so I will have to follow his progress at a distance and will update this review when they give me some feedback. I think that this will prove to be a useful tool to help him maximize his progress.

The binder is a great idea, but mine had a ring that didn't quite close so the pages caught every time I tried to turn them. Also, the inside front cover is already split almost the entire way down the seem. I will have to see if Amazon can help me out with a replacement but since I had a large binder on hand, I just moved the content into that one for now.

Update: Amazon has replaced the defective product, no problem. I did notice that the replacement was shrink wrapped but the first one wasn't. If you buy this, just take a minute to check it over and make sure it is in good condition.
