The Stroke Association have produced a guide to help people with aphasia get online. See the document HERE.
People with aphasia, researchers, and speech and language therapists have helped to create the document.
It stems from an original 2018 consultation with more than 100 people with aphasia across the UK.
This highlighted the importance of supporting people with aphasia and their families to use technology.
The guide uses aphasia-friendly text supported by carefully-designed images and can be used with a text reader.
It offers information and step-by-step guidance on a range of topics including:
- getting online
- searching for information
- setting up and using email
- online safety
- sharing a photograph
- using technology to support recovery
We hope this will help you get online
In addition, The Stroke Association will also be hosting an #AphasiaChat hour on the Stroke Association’s Twitter account – @TheStrokeAssoc
This will be on the 23rd June at 11:00.
Four questions will be asked and everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts.
This is for people with aphasia, families or anyone who supports people with aphasia.
“It would be great if some of your members could join or comment at a later time.” – Assistant Director at Stroke Association
