On Tuesday May 5th Speak With IT held our first Virtual Aphasia Cafe. The video call using Zoom was attended by 6 people with aphasia from our Leeds group and it went so well we have now decided to meet up in this way every fortnight.
During the first meeting we spent some time catching up before playing a quiz, hangman and higher or lower. Kevin was crowned quiz master after a storming performance. Well done to everyone who took part. Its official: Zooming is really not that hard!
If anyone else with aphasia wants to be involved in future groups please contact James on 01924 888609 or email email@example.com. We are opening the group up to new members from outside of Leeds during the Coronavirus outbreak so geography no longer needs to be a barrier.
The charity is happy to offer advice to help other organisations who wish to bring people together in this way.
