Welcome to SpeechRecovery.com!
SpeechRecovery.com offers a neuroplastic speech recovery method to those who suffer from mild to severe aphasia and apraxia. Our award-winning programs are used by brain injury and stroke survivors of all ages!
Our "brain friendly" speech practice programs use the Sensory Trigger Method to tap into brain pathways from early childhood and the undamaged speech centers on the other side of the brain. These special techniques are based on the brain research that shows that new pathways can reconnect speech.
After the new connections are made and a substantial level of speech returns, the sensory trigger will not be needed. New abilities will continue to expand on their own. We call this "neuroplastic speech recovery".
It works by something called "sensory substitution". The sensory trigger uses touch signals to substitute for the damaged or lost connections in the brain. These signals travel the neuro-pathways that are responsible for initiating and producing speech.
The touch signals learn how to communicate with the brain in a new way. They adapt and function just like speech signals and which are recognized by the undamaged speech centers.
It's much like Braille or American Sign Language; the fingertips and hand become the organ of speech. For the blind, the fingertips can be trained to read the tiny bumps on a page of a book or sign. For the deaf, the hands become their speech using gestures along with facial expressions and body language.
The Sensory Trigger Method uses the fingertips and hand movements. The touch signals teach the brain how to develop new speech areas capable of initiating speech independently and spontaneously.
Our programs have simple, motivating exercises. With daily practice and functional communication with family and others, one can now take charge of their speech recovery.
