Computer classes in Edinburgh for people with Aphasia

Speakability will be running small computing classes for people with aphasia at Queen Margaret University from February 2010. Further courses will be offered in the summer and in October.

Classes will be run by a speech and language therapist who has an understanding of the needs of learners with aphasia. As far as possible, the courses will be tailored to learners’ requirements and abilities.

Assistive technology will be available for people who use one hand, or who would benefit from touch-screens and predictive text. Assistance with transport may be provided for learners unable to use public transport.
