Do you have Aphasia?

If you’d like to work on improving your speech, and common issues associated with aphasia – such as using money; understanding numbers, dates and reading; and any short-term memory problems – our volunteers can give you one-on-one support in your own home.

We use a range of specialist computer apps as the basis for the therapy we offer. These will encourage you to regularly and effectively practice tailored exercises on your own, as research has shown such consistency can help to form new language pathways in the brain. Our volunteers will visit often, to give support, keep tracks of your progress and ensure the exercises set are of an appropriate level.

What our clients say about us…

“Do it slowly. In your mind you might think ‘I can’t do this’, but it will happen. When I couldn’t speak and could only hear, I had to remind myself to stay calm. Try and relax, every day is another opportunity to improve. Don’t think too far ahead.”

Deborah

“I’m nearing retirement age and I wanted a new challenge. I saw the opportunity on the do-it.org website for a volunteer speech support worker and felt it was an excellent fit for my skill-set and experience. It appeared to be just what I was looking for.”

Sarah

“Being able to talk to someone who understands aphasia and what it’s like to live with the condition is something I look forward to – even if it’s just for an hour or two each month. I can understand that it’s difficult to have a conversation with me, but I don’t ever feel that I’m inconveniencing my Speak With I.T. volunteer.”
