UCC students to relaunch Aphasia Café in December

Thursday, 7th November, 2019 8:47am

The UCC Clinical Therapy Society is relaunching the Aphasia Cafe, hosted in the Haven Cafe. 

Established in 2017, the Aphasia Café provides a friendly, warm and welcoming environment for those with acquired language difficulty following a stroke or traumatic brain injury. The event allows people with aphasia to meet with others and socialise without the fear of having a breakdown in communication.

The cafe offers specialised menus which contain visuals, and have trained staff to help assist guests. The College of Speech and Hearing Sciences in UCC is also running a digital badge to encourage students to attend the café and gain invaluable experience meeting with people with aphasia, and learning how to communicate with them.

The relaunch aims to raise greater awareness for people with aphasia, and to encourage more members of the general public to attend. Aphasia Café events offer an excellent and effective resource for people with aphasia, and those who would like to learn more about it. The relaunch will take place on Friday 6 December, and all are encouraged to attend.

The Aphasia Café will run on the first Friday of every month from 2 to 4pm in the Haven Café on Bachelors Quay.
