Aphasia: Communicating Through Barriers

Do you have aphasia or know someone who does and has difficulty accessing helpful information and services? Unfortunately there is discrimination for individuals with aphasia in the community due to lack of knowledge and assumptions of substance impairment and that makes it difficult for this population when accessing services such as transportation.

Look for this Aphasia: Communicating Through Barriers poster* all over Brandon and let us know how we can help.

*This poster was created and developed by Brandon University 4th year Bachelor of Nursing students Abbie O’Neill and Carly Leverington, who attended WAI’s full day workshop Let’s Talk Aphasia on November 16.
