(NECN/WNYT: Benita Zahn) - It's almost two years since 33-year-old Nate Shoultz suffered a stroke that robbed him of his ability to speak.

As the father of four young children, to say it was devastating is an understatement, but he has persevered and is getting help in recovering what he's lost thanks to an iPad.

Nate is proving what research is finding, that technology can help with cognitive therapy.

The iPad is easier to use at home and Nate's wife says for a guy who was always tech savvy, it's a connection with this pre-stroke life.
