We are so excited to announce that we will be launching an aphasia friendly website in the near future. Designed with the advice of people with aphasia the website offers an opportunity to regain confidence in using IT again. The lottery grant that funded the project has allowed us to produce an innovative, and easy to navigate site for people with aphasia and their families.
Plymouth Marjon University Speech and Language Therapy students and all our members are involved in the site.
Some good news! We’re getting a shiny new aphasia friendly website!
Thanks to a National Lottery Community Fund we’ll be able to reach more people living with aphasia online.
Watch this space for more updates.
Other good news is our Online Creative Art sessions are proving to be very popular. Magic Carpet, an Arts for Wellbeing Charity is providing fabulous sessions for us to get creative and express ourselves without words.
The more people who know what aphasia is, the easier the lives will be for those who live with it.
Aphasia awareness month is a great way to spend some time focusing on spreading the word ‘aphasia‘ around as much as possible.
In the UK:
About 350,000 people in the UK have aphasia – help our affiliate charity Say Aphasia educate 350,000 other people about aphasia. So that people who live with aphasia do not feel so alone, isolated and misunderstood.
