What is The Word Exchange?
Please note: Due to these uncertain times, the Word Exchange has been put on hold until further notice.
The Word Exchange is the free free adult conversation group in Windsor, Ontario where people with aphasia can come together to have conversations about their lives, conditions, and experiences. Our volunteers help to facilitate conversations and continue support even after outpatient services using the Life Participation Approach to Aphasia (LPAA).
What we hope to accomplish
With this group, we hope to increase the quality of life, self-esteem, communication confidence, and reduce the social isolation that people with aphasia experience after the onset of this condition. Based on other successful groups in Ontario, we know that bringing together a group of people that can relate to one another on such a level can produce positive changes in one’s life and instil a sense of belonging.
