We present a case report of a right-handed man who experienced a left hemisphere stroke and the onset of severe, persistent aphasia at age 52. This man is of interest because of his remarkable use of drawing for communication that was initiated at two years post-onset of aphasia. We provide an overview of his course of treatment from one to 5 years postonset and describe the development of his effective multimodal approach to communication.
