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.
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.
There are a number of tools available to help people with Aphasia communicate.
This two-page communication licence displays your individual needs. This will help carers and professionals learn how to best support you.
