Funded by:

University of Leeds

Location:

Online

Recruitment Criterea:

  • All participants will need to have a good level of English to fully understand the participant information sheet and therefore to provide informed consent and follow the study instructions. However, can be from anywhere in the UK as the questionnaire is online.
  • Anyone who has not had a stroke or who is experiencing aphasia as a result of another brain injury will be excluded, because this research aims to specifically investigate the role of virtual communication on wellbeing in individuals who have aphasia as a result of a stroke.
  • Of those who do have aphasia, any individual with a language impairment so severe to the extent that the questionnaire cannot be completed or understood, even with the help of a carer, will be excluded.
