Communication practice group
Practice and hone your communication skills in a safe, non-threatening environment and learn from other survivors of brain injury or stroke.
This monthly practice group allows persons with aphasia or dysarthria from a stroke, brain injury or illness to practice basic communication skills in a safe, non-threatening environment. The group is based on the principle that aphasia and other communication impairments are chronic, life-altering conditions worthy of ongoing intervention and support.
Meetings are facilitated by a speech-language pathologist and adult volunteers. They usually include the following:
- Introductions and structured question/answer sessions
- Use of cues and supportive communication approaches to encourage all participants to communicate to the best of their ability
- Breaking out into small groups or being paired with another participant
- The use of writing, mime or gesture and body language by participants to express themselves
Meeting times: the first Wednesday of each month from noon–1:00 p.m.
Meeting locations: various conference rooms at Regions Hospital. Stop at the front desk or at the Rehabilitation Institute to find out where the meeting will be located.
