I have so much appreciation for the Aphasia Center of West Texas that the most recent donation I have made was actually in honor of "the staff." Most of the staff have been with the Center for many years and have put their hearts and souls into creating a meaningful, satisfying experience for each of their clients. Over the years since its inception, I have had the pleasure of creating the first "Sing-along" program, volunteering in other aspects, and supporting the Center in various other ways. Many, many times I have watched the clients laugh uproariously with their classmates and the staff. I have watched them create lovely Christmas decorations and paint prettier paintings than I could. I have watched them learn tools for communicating, work in the garden, and learn computer skills. I could go on and on about the benefits to the clients, but I could also go on and on about the benefits to family members and volunteers who learn techniques for communicating with people who have Aphasia. I work in an assisted living facility in which one of the clients lives. On many occasions, I have been called to the front desk to help figure out what it is this lady is trying to say. Because of the techniques I have learned, I am frequently the one who can understand what she is attempting to say. Kudos to you, Aphasia Center! Keep up the good work!
