The Stroke Association have created a guide to try to help people with aphasia get online. You can find the document here.

This new ‘aphasia-friendly’ guide has been co-created with the support of people with aphasia, speech and language therapists, and researchers.   


It stems from our original 2018 consultation with more than 100 people with aphasia across the UK. 


This highlighted the importance of supporting people with aphasia and their families to use technology.


The guide uses aphasia-friendly text supported by carefully-designed images and can be used with a text reader.


It offers information and step-by-step guidance on a range of topics including:


  • getting online
  • searching for information
  • setting up and using email
  • online safety
  • sharing a photograph
  • using technology to support recovery

We hope this new guide is useful to you. Please let us know your thoughts.

Has this helped you get online?
