    Much of our social life consists of sharing daily stories with other people. However, sharing personal stories can be extremely difficult for people with limited verbal ability, such as those suffering from expressive aphasia. Aphasia is an acquired communication disorder that is caused by brain injury or trauma. Aphasia affects language comprehension and generation (Hillis, 2007), so that people’s ability to express themselves verbally suffers. As a result, aphasia often leads to increased social isolation and possibly to depression. Solutions that can help sufferers to share experiences effectively will not only empower them, but should also help to reduce the burden on partners and other caregivers.
