Congratulations Banu! Don't forget to get the creative commons license for your blog entries -

Love, your paranoid friend Zeynep (ps. Arda & Tunca say they'd love to meet Kaan soon - I told Tunca that they're only a few weeks apart, so when you come & visit give us a call!)

Posting on behalf of Richard:

Banu: Your article is extraordinary, especially in light of the often
devastating nature of aphasia.
I would like to learn more about your journey - what worked, what did not,
what was most useful.

I am associated with a newly formed nonprofit with the mission of
establishing "life participation" aphasia centers around
the country adopting best practices from the most successful programs. Your
input would be wonderful. I can be reached at I look forward to hearing from you. Best
regards, Richard M. Cole

Congratulations! I look forward to reading this and then typing it out in a way my aphasiac mother (55 years old) can read it.

I'm in a Neuropsychology course at Boston University, and I happened to stumble upon your article while looking for the cookie theft picture. I have learned so much from reading your blogs. Thank you so much. Truly. Please, do appreciate your progress and how much you've taught others. Thank you (:

God bless.
