Aphasia: Caregiver Account

Available for streaming and as a podcast, from WNYC:

"Diane Ackerman's One Hundred Names for Love"
22 April 2011
WNYC Leonard Lopate Show

"Diane Ackerman talks about her husband, Paul West’s, stroke and long recovery. He was afflicted with aphasia—loss of language—and Diane, frustrated with traditional therapies, relied on her scientific understanding of language and the brain to guide Paul back to the world of words. Her book One Hundred Names for Love: A Stroke, a Marriage, and the Language of Healing is an account of stroke, aphasia, and recovery, as well a love story."
