For an insightful look into the daily struggles and triumphs of someone dealing with a speech limitation, we suggest reading Robbin Blankenship’s blog, Living with Dysarthria (click link to follow to blog).  Robbin has been dealing with dysarthria – a motor speech disorder resulting from neurological injury, since she sustained a traumatic brain injury more than 20 years ago. In her blog, she recounts her daily experiences and shares information for others who may be living with the same challenges.

Robbin currently serves on the Virginia Relay Advisory Council, where she advises on STS (Speech-To-Speech), HCO (Hearing Carry-Over) and other Relay technologies that are designed to assist people with speech difficulties.
