Waterstones ‘Aphasia Café’

Posted 27th October 2021

Conversations in a public space, like a café, can pose extra challenges when you have aphasia. They can be noisy, distracting, and frustrating. However, these difficulties van be overcome. With the expert help of Rhona, our SLT at Kingston, a small group of Dyscover members are engaged in a series of trial sessions at the Waterstones café in Kingston’s Bentall Centre. Rhona is helping staff understand aphasia and our members’ needs. With smaller tables, a quieter corner of the café, and pen and paper to support conversations, members are enjoying ‘Dyscover out and about’ and growing in confidence. Waterstones staff have given us a warm welcome; the extra cookies were especially appreciated!
