The Aphasia iPad Group is part of the School of Computing’s User Centre, helping adults with aphasia in using an iPad to support their communication. The group was established by members of the local Speakeasy group, a self-help group affiliated to Speakability, the national charity for people with aphasia, together with the Speech and Language Therapy adult service of the NHS Tayside.
The group currently receives funding from Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) for running the Tap and Talk user group sessions. More information on our project page: aac.dundee.ac.uk/tap-and-talk.
