‘Bama Perks’ Beats Aphasia One Sip at a Time – article from ASHA Leader

In the March ’17 edition of ASHA Leader (and my morning’s facebook feed) I read an article about a communication program for adults with aphasia at the University of Alabama.  (That’s my grad school – Roll Tide!)  I’ve always said that you could throw an SLP into any space with any random materials (or even none at all) and we can facilitate communication therapy.  The SLPs at Bama are using coffee as their therapy tool.  I think this is so innovative and is creating such a meaningful environment for these adult clients! Check out the article and be ready to be inspired!  What therapy tools have you used in creative ways?
