Organisation

Edinburgh Speakability

Details
We meet regularly for mutual support and social activities. They are not therapy groups, but members are encouraged to practise their communication skills

Speakability Self-Help Group is run by and for people with Aphasia - language-loss following stroke, head injury or other neurological condition.

At our meetings we support each other, share experiences, make new friends, rebuild self-confidence and develop new skills.

We do not provide therapy.

We practise total communication using words, drawing, pictures and gesture in a safe environment helping people gain their self-confidence.

We all understand Aphasia and encourage each other in our recovery.

We relax and have fun. We raise awareness of Aphasia in our local community and raise funds to support our group meetings, activities and outings.

Group members have also found our Groups useful as a support for returning to work.
