Technology Workshops for Communication Disabilities

Technology is an important part of everybody’s lives, but people with communication disabilities due to stroke and other neurological condition can get special benefit from technology. Special monthly workshops are being offered by Voices of Hope for Aphasia to help people with communication disabilities and their families learn about life-changing technology options.

The next workshop, on how to use technology to store and manage important health information, will be offered at Dunedin’s Hale Activity Center on Thursday, February 22 from 10 am – 12 pm. The same workshop will be offered in St Petersburg on Friday, February 23 from 10 am – 12 pm at USFSP’s Coquina Hall.

The March workshop will focus and how to use technology to practice communication skills at home, and will be offered in St Petersburg on March 9 and Dunedin on March 8. Topics change each month, so check the website for specific topics and dates.

“Often people who might benefit the most from technology options do not have access to devices, or to the training required to benefit from it,” said Dr. Jackie Hinckley, Executive Director. “We offer specially designed programs so that those with no technology experience or knowledge can learn what will help them most. All of our workshops are led by experienced certified speech-language pathologists.”

Voices of Hope for Aphasia is a 501(c)3 nonprofit serving adults with communication disabilities throughout the Tampa Bay area. In addition to the specialized technology programs, community-based group programs and events are held throughout the week.
