Humans of ASHA: Angela Ciccia

One day, I received a voicemail message from a father of a young man I saw for therapy post brain injury asking, "Did you know that you can predict the future?" I, of course, had no idea what he was talking about!

I called him back and he asked if I remembered a session we had about 10 years ago. Dad had been concerned about his son surrounding himself with people that understood him. He recalled that we talked about his son having people in his life that understood executive function—people that could provide scaffolding and support without even knowing it.

Fast-forward 10 years, Dad was calling me to let me know that his son was getting married—to an SLP graduate student! He said my "prediction" was true!

A few weeks later, a wedding invitation arrived in my office!
