Hi guys I only joined in and very new. What activities do you assist with someone who has lost all their speech but understands when you verbally interact with them??They can’t participate in any physical activities, only sat on the chair at all times.

Hi Akanisi
We have many activities for those with expressive aphasia as you are describe

Can the person use his upper body because there are many movements you can do with those who can only sit but can use their upper body
Even if they can only do one thing it’s better than nothing

I suggest they not touch the toes but otherwise this is a fun routine that can be done from my chair
Let me know if you need any more ideas
