In our experience, people with aphasia gain most from Dyscover once they have progressed through an individual Speech and Language Therapy programme, and have reached a point where they might benefit from peer support and help to generalise communication skills into a more functional group environment.
We are always happy to discuss potential referrals, and if therapy is recent or ongoing, how we can support patients’ functional communication goals.

All referrals should be submitted on the downloadable form, and emailed to email@example.com
We ask that all referrals have acquired aphasia and no significant additional cognitive disorder. There is no age or geographical restriction. Our centres are accessible and we welcome wheelchair users, but we are unable to provide personal care, so require our members to be independent in the toilet. Referrals to our Kingston group may be eligible for social services transport, but referrals to Walton are responsible for making their own arrangements.
All referrals are contacted by phone and if appropriate, invited to visit our centre for an informal assessment. The next step is an invitation to join a group for a trial period, after which membership for the rest of the term may be offered. All members pay a small termly fee which contributes to the cost of running our service.
