Anyone can phone or email us for more information. Our staff are used to helping people with aphasia. If we think we can help you, we will arrange an appointment for you to visit us. One of our Speech and Language Therapists will assess you. You can also find out more about Dyscover here. The next step is a trial visit to the group we think is most suitable for you.
