Research

Posted 15th May 2019
Working with academics in the field of aphasia is both important and interesting to us and our Members. It helps us develop evidence based services and also provides opportunities for people with aphasia to engage in research and make a difference.
We welcomed SLT Ciara Shiggins and psychologist colleague Hayley from UEA in Norwich. Their aphasia friendly presentation about the ASSENT project generated a lot of interest amongst Members, several of whom have volunteered to take part in interviews.
We will welcome Ciara and colleagues back next week.

New Photographs for the Annual Report

Posted 15th May 2019
Its Annual Report writing time and good pictures are needed. Perfect opportunity for Member Paul to use his skills, talents and impressive kit!

Paul was great, following a brief of what pictures we wanted he was able to manage the lighting & composition and made members feel at ease.

Mental Health Awareness Week

Posted 15th May 2019

After stroke, people with aphasia experience more isolation and depression than those without aphasia, but talking through problems and connecting with friends is often difficult or impossible.
At Dyscover we understand the need for extra time, space and support for communication, to enable adjustment and recovery #mental health awareness week.

Dyscover 25th Anniversary Lunch

Posted 7th May 2019

We had a fantastic celebration of Dyscover’s 25th Anniversary on Friday, the brilliant Courgettes performed not only some 60’s favourites but a 25th song just for us! A lovely lunch and super cake was followed by a few words from Gill, our founder and president, who went on to win (for the 1st time ever) 4th prize in our Top Draw – a very fitting end to a marvellous celebration.

Companion Cycling – Thursday 18th April

Posted 23rd April 2019

Five Dyscover members enjoyed the perfect weather for companion cycling in Bushy Park on Thursday – the temperature was a balmy 21 degrees!
Graham tried out a twinbike cycle for the first time (more similar to riding a conventional bike than the side-by-side trikes favoured by many of our members) and he did brilliantly, making it look so effortless and easy!

The only challenge was Bushy Park’s hump-back bridge which Jeremy crossed with ease!
