We have just completed our latest 6 week Conversation Partners Course. The course aims to improve couples understanding of their aphasia and equip them with strategies to manage their conversations better.
Couples also learn about language comprehension and the importance of checking understanding – One couple are pictured giving and following instructions. 3 of the couples were from our learning to live with aphasia group and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive: with one participant commenting-
‘Understanding my brain …how it works.. and tools are useful ( in conversation)’
‘Standing back watching my husband speak with (the Speech and Language therapist) made me realise how much he’s progressed’ was another encouraging remark from a relative participating on the course. We look forward to running this course in the Spring for members of the charity ‘Talk’.
