Life can change in the blink of an eye.
It’s a fact that Terry Hatch, a patient at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Barkley Speech Language and Hearing Clinic, knows well.
Ten years ago, Hatch was enjoying a lengthy career as a camera operator at NET when he had a stroke. The language center of his brain was damaged, and he was diagnosed with a speech disorder known as aphasia. The injury left him largely unable to communicate.
