(Speech and Language Therapist), from Islington New words, new rules and all under pressure. Understanding what is happening and what you need to do in a crisis situation can be very demanding. Some of the clients we work with already have communication needs. Here are some pictures which show what the new words mean and will help you to explain what is happening. They will also be helpful if English is not the person's first language. There were produced by @KCann but can be reproduced. At Change Communication we have laminated them onto A3 and cut them up so we can use them to tell a story. If you are in London we are happy to meet you and your client and help do this if we have capacity. You can email here: leigh.andrews@chgcomm.org http://nebula.wsimg.com/438514d864d2d7decad3083254de2b35?AccessKeyId=5861B1733117182DC99B&disposition=0&alloworigin=1
(Resettlement Support Worker), from Cardiff Hi leigh I am looking for some advise for a client I am currently supporting who suffered a horrific stroke at the beginning of his sentence, three years ago, and he now suffers severe short term memory loss, has other health issues that led to stroke, and is extremely vulnerable. He can no longer read or write, has no way of being able to live independently. He was meant to have memory clinic appointments in addition to his sessions with neurology consultant but many have been cancelled due to current COVID crisis. I was in the process of looking into support for brain injury, but now extremely concerned what I will be able to implement with the limited resources. How I can put in place things for him to manage everyday when released Also are there online courses or information I can access as a support worker for working with brain injuries. Thank you
