I don't have much experience teaching stroke survivors, but I have worked with teaching children and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities for a couple of years now. It's all about the repetition, and small steps. Make sure you're providing positive feedback for every small victory. What about lever knitting? It props the needle under the arm and does the remainder of the steps with the opposite hand. It could allow easier "juggling" of the needles and yarn. I know I had trouble learning since I'm extremely left-hand dominant, but was taught right-handed with ease!
