Intensive Conversation Camps

This clinic provides intensive speech and language therapy for people with communication difficulties and a partner (spouse, partner, family member or friend) based around better conversations.

This clinic provides two different intensive speech and language therapy interventions:

  • Conversation Camp 1 is for people with speech and language difficulties associated with primary progressive aphasia (PPA) and other overlapping conditions, and a partner (a spouse, partner, family member or friend).
  • Conversation Camp 2 is for people who have aphasia after a stroke, and a partner (a spouse, partner, family member or friend).

The therapy is all delivered by student speech and language therapists, supervised by expert consultant speech and language therapists and researchers in the field of PPA and stroke aphasia.
