Aphasia iPad Partners (360G-SCVO-a11b000000EtrhmAAB)

This is a collaborative project between the Dundee AAC Research Group (DARG), Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS) and NHS Tayside speech and language therapy (SLT). DARG runs the “Tap and Talk” aphasia iPad group (TaT). Through working with TaT, they have identified the need to train aphasia communication partners (ACP) in the use of iPads especially when they support people with severe aphasia (PWSA). Over two one-day workshops they will up-skill aphasia communication partners in iPad use. Two technology educators will teach key iPad skills which will be interspersed with training in practical application for communication support delivered by two speech and language therapists. Communication partners (such as spouses, family members, friends, staff from care facilities or volunteers) will learn how to use the iPad as a shared communication space in which partners and PWSA can co-construct rewarding conversations. A quality film will be produced through the training with the final product being uploaded to youtube. The project therefore has two key aims. Firstly, to achieve better conversations and interactions between people with aphasia and their partners through the multi-modal communication that an iPad offers. Secondly, over a longer period of time, for individuals with aphasia to increase their iPad skills through example, instruction and supported practice from their peer partner.
