Aphasia: An Intro and How to Stop Communication Breakdown
In this webcast, we will take time to talk about Aphasia in general and then Daralynn Swensrude will take time to present on her experiences as an affected individual.
Daralynn’s presentation will inform, educate, and provide strategies to health care providers and others for working with individuals with communication difficulties.
Daralynn herself acquired a head injury at work almost 4 years ago and as a result, has a keen understanding of the challenges of language/communication. She is able to advocate for those without a voice.
She will recount her story, experiences since her fall, and gives strategies that give everyone an opportunity to help.
No matter the communication issues, Aphasia, ESL, or a hearing impairment, it is important to listen to those we serve.
