Now she has her voice back, Clodagh uses it to campaign for better services for stroke survivors. She’s worked closely with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists as part of the ‘My Journey, My Voice’ project to highlight the devastating impact of communication disability. She regularly gives speeches to raise awareness of aphasia, a communication condition that affects about a third of stroke survivors.
RCSLT is eternally grateful to Clodagh and all the other My Journey My Voice participants who have shared their remarkable stories over the last number of months.
Congratulations to Clodagh on her recent Life After Stroke Adult Courage Award by the Stroke Association!
