Hey everyone!Â I have some great
news… first off, earlier in the year a young lady who contacted me via Twitter, then email and eventually interviewed me, wrote a research paper for class and blogged about Foreign Accent Syndrome. I will attach the link to it since it was so good.
Then this evening I had a cousin message me that a big college professor is fascinated and may be using some of my materials for his class!
This is encouraging as so many more people are helped when more educators teach the truth about that Foreign Accent Syndrome is a real, neurological, brain malfunction and press for further research and proper diagnosis and treatment.
I really hope that the information that V and I are both eager to share with others will go beyond raising an interested eyebrow of the curious. Hopefully this will ignite further study in the medical and scientific communities, and most especially in the areas of neuroscience, brain and language. The more people that learn the truth from those of us living with Foreign Accent, the faster and better will be the scientific development of hypotheses, the greater impact that might be realized to benefit those who have FAS and those as yet undiagnosed.
On top of that I have talked by phone with two brand new cases that are now people who are feeling a bit less traumatized by instantly feeling understood by speaking with me and knowing they are neither alone or crazy.
There are so many more people to reach and teach 😉
