Thank you so much for taking on the challenge of a Half Marathon to help stroke survivors rebuild their lives after stroke.
This project will develop a special therapy area within ‘Second Life’, an existing virtual reality world on the internet. It will be protected so that only other people with aphasia and specially trained support workers can take part.
About one-third of stroke survivors are left with aphasia. This is a language disorder that disrupts the production and comprehension of speech, as well as reading and writing. This study will investigate whether a support group intervention can be delivered remotely to people with aphasia through a virtual island platform called Eva Park.
Eva Park is a virtual world where stroke survivors can do things like go to a health centre, a hairdresser or cafe, and connect with other users. It was specifically designed for stroke survivors with a communication problem called aphasia.
Our choir is going from strength to strength, doing local performances during the year.
