“COMMUNIQUER AVEC UNE PERSONNE APHASIQUE” was created to establish a bridge between the persons with aphasia and their relatives. Learn how to better understand and communicate with you loved one by viewing three familiar situations. These illustrate common mistakes, and show how gestures and looks can help a person with aphasia to participate and make personal decisions.
Every scenario is narrated by the pedagogue, Guylaine LeDorze, tenured teacher at the school of Speech Language Pathology and Audiology of the Université de Montréal. By the end, the viewer knows the basis of respectful communication and how to include the person with aphasia. They are also included in a pamphlet for group animation purpose.
