Horse Riding at Horsley and Bookham

Posted 29th May 2019
Laying foundations for another accessible sport opportunity – this time at Horsley and Bookham Riding for the Disabled. The centre is focussed on making horse-riding as accessible as possible, and have adapted facilities including a raised mount block for easy mounting of the horses.
An exciting taster session will be offered to Members during the summer break!

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.
