The PCR has been designed with two groups in mind: health professionals (speech-language pathologists, physicians, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, etc.) and conversation partners working under the supervision of a health professional. The PCR is designed to facilitate discussions with aphasic people. Material is innovative in its combination of thematic organization, adult subject matter and depiction, and inclusion of complex topics.
"Volunteering at the Aphasia Institute has been an amazing experience. It’s such a great feeling to help someone express themselves, or help someone understand another’s message. It can be challenging sometimes, but that just makes the moment a connection goes through that much more special. More than anything, I really appreciate the strong sense of community that the Aphasia Institute creates and being a part of that community." - Vidya David, Volunteer
