Referral for Support
This scheme supports clients to access video calls with a trained volunteer. When face to face contact is not possible, video calls enable clients to receive remote support from Speak With IT. On Zoom, people with aphasia can access therapy apps or supported conversation activities by utilising the screen sharing option with guidance from their volunteer.
