Living with Aphasia Conference – March 2020

 In 2016  we  had  a  very  successful  conference  for  people  with  aphasia

“it was fantastic”

“great two days”

It  was  so  popular  we  have  been  asked  to  run  another

The  conference  will  be  held  in  Coventry   in  England.   March 2020

Families, friends,  aphasia  and  stroke organisations,  and  health  professionals  are  also  invited.  

People  with  aphasia  have  helped  plan  the  conference  and  will  chair  the  sessions. 

All information  will  be  presented  in  a  way  that  is  easier  for  people  with  aphasia. 

There  will  be  support  from  therapists  and  students  to  help  people  to  join  in.

We  will  discuss  ways  that  people  can  ‘live  well  with  aphasia’

  • technology and  aphasia,  learn  and  have  a  go
  • what’s happening  about  aphasia  in  the  UK  and  around  the  world
  • research
  • support for  carers  of  people  with  aphasia
  • travel with  aphasia
  • volunteering with  aphasia
  • aphasia and  the  arts

This is a wonderful opportunity

  • Do something  new, develop  confidence,  be  inspired
  • Learn from  each  other  and  share  ideas
  • Find out  about  new  services  and  ways  to  help
