“Speechless”: In Search of Happiness and Communication

June is National Aphasia Awareness Month. About 40% of people who have a stroke have difficulty communicating, a health condition called aphasia. DCO member Voices of Aphasia is offering a free screening of the one-hour documentary “Speechless”.  The film shows three stroke survivors struggling to regain their life after the loss of communication skills. Through their story we witness a quest for happiness and the real meaning of human communication. The film will be followed by discussion with an expert panel of specialists. Learn more about what happens and what you can do to help at this event that is free and open to the public.
