We all know the power of reading. It is so valuable and necessary is to our everyday living. Imagine this skill taken away by a stroke. How different would your life be? Bryce, a young father of two small children, suffered a massive stroke while at work. Bryce not only lost his job, he lost his ability to speak and read, as well as share this skill with his children. Bryce traveled from Utah to Austin to receive intensive speech and language therapy at Austin Speech Labs. He has made incredible gains. His sister sent us a message after she watched Bryce read a full sentence to his children over Facetime.
Bryce's kids were so excited they shouted "WOAH!!"
Their love for him exploded through the iPad. They were so proud of their dad's success.
In 2020, we will expand our reach and go beyond the walls of Austin Speech Labs so that people like Bryce can benefit from our therapy techniques while at home. We have been working hard to develop a program to help our clients relearn to read. While the program is working great in the office, it takes a lot of practice, and we feel the best way to help our clients achieve their goals faster is to have them continue this work at home. How do we do that? We build an app! Our goal is to raise $25,000 to do this. Give today knowing that your donation will help stroke survivors around the world learn to read again. Thank you!
