after therapy

When people decide to leave therapy, they may want to keep in touch with Connect. They may want long-term support.

They may want to continue to enjoy the ongoing social support, and our aphasia-friendly community.

They might contribute their skills in training volunteers and students.

They may want to become volunteers themselves.

They can offer insights, ideas and help in developing the work of Connect, for example by supporting research projects.



The kinds of long-term support groups people might join after therapy:

Conversation group - offers opportunities for people with aphasia to meet and discuss topics of common interest. A chance to continue to use newly acquired conversation skills.

Self-advocacy group - a monthly group which meets to consider ways of raising the profile of issues surrounding aphasia in the political and social arena.

Young people with aphasia group - a discussion group for young people with aphasia, looking at issues such as work, education, relationships and information on new therapies.
