I teach students with autistic spectrum disorders and I do a lot of work with children with no or very little speech. My close relative has also aphasia as a result of stroke and I have been closely involved in her rehabilitation process. Because the brain must be re-organized, it is important to do exercises regularly on a daily basis. It would be good if the words you are going to use in exercises are the ones you use normally preferably on a daily basis. For example, the kitchen and dining related words. Repetition is important! Rehabilitation can take a long time, so perseverance is required. I read last summer Norman Doige's book "The Brain that Changes Itself", that was earlier mentioned in this conversation and I recommend it warmly. Of course we must not forget speech therapy as one of the most important means of aphasia rehabilitation. Additional exercises should be planned with speech therapist to get the best results.
