Comments from a participant:

 

“Before the training I had zero knowledge of what aphasia was, so it was incredibly helpful. It was great to have a chance to try the strategies with people with Aphasia so that I had a bit of experience before leaving the training Truly a great session, especially if you have no prior knowledge.”
