Training and Awareness
We hope by raising awareness of aphasia and equipping others to provide the right sort of support, we will make life easier for people with this disability. Our Community Aphasia Awareness Project (CAAP) is led by people with aphasia, and supported by volunteers. The group visits community organisations such as Rotary, the WI, and the Fire Service to tell their stories and so raise awareness and understanding of aphasia. This short presentation is free of charge and can be booked though our CAAP group coordinator.
Specialist Training courses
From time to time we run bespoke courses for health and social care workers, voluntary groups and other outside organisations who want to understand more about aphasia, and learn appropriate support strategies. These courses are led by our Speech and Language Therapists, and include a practical component which is delivered by Dyscover members. Courses are usually 2 to 3 hours long and a charge is made. We are very happy to discuss individual requirements.
