Tap and Talk (360G-SCVO-a11b0000001Sr7xAAC)

The project will provide a specialised support environment where people with aphasia can come together to learn and consolidate skills for using their tablet devices to support their communication. The benefits in using this technology, especially for communication, are immense. However, for individuals with aphasia, they require focussed direction and expert knowledge in order to overcome physical and cognitive access challenges. Unlike other computer support groups, sessions must be planned and structured taking into account the diverse needs and abilities of participants. One-to-one support from helpers and peers which is coordinated by trained assistive technologists who understand the access and learning needs of disabled users is required. The group will provide ongoing support for individuals who no longer receive acute speech and language therapy. Although therapists acknowledge the need for ongoing support, there is currently no mechanism in place to provide this support.
