How do people with Aphasia create and maintain friendships through virtual communication?

Friendships are an important aspect of living successfully for many people with aphasia. We often communicate virtually. This can help keep people in touch with friends. An example of virtual communication is communication over text or video call. This research will help us learn more about friendships and communicating virtually in people with aphasia. It might tell us what is helpful and what is difficult. It will involve an interview over Zoom. We hope this will tell us what is helpful about using virtual communication for friendships in people with aphasia, and ways we can provide additional benefit.
