Tips for Writing Checks
By Aphasia Expert, Paul Berger

I have aphasia, a language problem from my stroke. This means I have trouble with names, including names of people, names of days of the week, and names of numbers. This can be a problem when writing checks.

I usually pay bills and keep track of my business accounts on the computer. I've been using Quicken since I had my stroke, and most of my check-writing is just a few clicks.

There are times, however, when I need to write a check by hand. Stephanie wrote out a list of the names of numbers for me to use. I've been using it for years, and keep it with my checkbook I take it to the grocery store, shopping mall, restaurant, and any other place I might write a check.

You are marvels!  I just read the newsletter ... and it is simply priceless (I always read them, and they are all noteworthy, but this one is beyond good.)  Paul, your book is in my book as something that all clinicians should have, read, pass on (ie, make them buy) to their clients.
 -Audrey Holland, Professor Emerita,University of Arizona
