"We will use our previous experience to:
1. Co-create prototypes of an on-line assessment tool and accessible workbooks for people with aphasia to independently learn iPad operation principles.
2. Trial methods to promote independent and peer learning through two workshops.
On completion we will have designed assessment tools, learning resources and a workshop model that can be exploited by many individuals and groups.
Our title, “It’s not one thing” reflects the multiple benefits our participants with aphasia experienced in pilot studies. Our goal is to make these benefits available more widely. "
