Our unique Acquired Communication Disorders OCN Level 2 course looks at a range of disorders that can affect older people. Led by two qualified speech and language specialists, the feedback is good:
“Informative but not overloading”, “Great content!”, “Well delivered course”. “Ideas for communication were useful, I could use them with one client who would benefit”.
Participants learned about types of communication disorder acquired in older age. For example the various types of aphasia and dysarthia plus their impacts on speech and language. They then looked at useful communication aids and practical approaches.
Hearing Impairment and Visual Impairment Support UK (Hi-VisUK) is a UK registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation – a charity – raising awareness, offering training, providing qualifications, and opportunities to support older people with age acquired dual sensory loss.
