    I need help selecting a communication board for my son. He has had a stroke and is
    non -verbal for the most part. He is sixty years old and is in a rehabilitation center in
    Clinton, Missouri. He does not have use of his right arm and hand. He gets very frustrated . I would like to send him a board. Thank you

      Carol, he is so lucky to have you looking out for him!! There are some great resources for people who have had strokes. The best way to start is to ask his physician to request an AAC evaluation. The speech language pathologist (SLP) who works for the facility can do that so that he ends up with the right communication aids and (even more importantly) the support to be successful. Medicare covers this kind of evaluation, in most cases.
