This guide is for people with aphasia.
This guide is also for your family and friends.
It has information about getting online and using technology.
You can get online even if you have never done this before.
This guide has 14 sections.
You do not need to use all sections.
Take your time and work at your own pace.
Practise with a family member or friend.
