To honor National Aphasia Awareness month, we feel it is important to revisit the excerpt below from the original resolution that Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota sponsored recognizing June as National Aphasia Awareness Month:
“Whereas people with Aphasia and their caregivers envision a world that recognizes the ‘silent’ disability of Aphasia and provides opportunity and fulfillment for people affected by Aphasia. Now, therefore, be it resolved, that the Senate:
- Supports efforts to increase awareness of aphasia
- Acknowledges that aphasia deserves more attention and study to find new solutions
- Supports efforts to make the voices of people with aphasia heard
- Encourages all people in the United States to observe National Aphasia Awareness Month”
We hope that this educational infographic captures the essence of this resolution and drives positive outcomes for all people living with Aphasia, and those who support them through advocacy, treatment, education and support.
