Supported Communication Workshops

workshopThese practical half day workshops allow participants to develop their skills in supported communication. The Stroke Education Facilitator and NHS Lothian Speech and Language Therapy Department facilitate the workshops alongside people with aphasia. The workshops can be delivered to teams within health and social care who have completed Current Care in Stroke Part 1 or Stroke Core Competency online training

Comments from those involved in the workshops include:

“The workshops are really good and all the staff I meet with are different. I’m glad the staff found my story interesting and understand how important communication is in life after stroke.”

Person with aphasia

“The workshop was the best course I have ever been on. It has completely changed the way I relate to people with communication problems.”
