Firleb also specialises in conversation therapy and can offer four different packages

Conversation therapy includes the person with aphasia and their chosen communication partner in each session.

Please note this approach requires you (the clients) to video two of your everyday conversations. Short video clips from your conversation are then shown to you during therapy to help you explore your conversations with aphasia.

Video equipment and instructions for use can be supplied by Firleb therapies, but this requires a fully refundable deposit before starting.

Assessment Only Package (4 weeks)

Aim: To provide clients (person with aphasia and chosen communication partner) with information about the rules of conversation works without aphasia and how their aphasia has changed their conversation rules (with examples using their own videoed conversations). The report also offers practical suggestions about how the person with aphasia and their partner could change their behaviours to improve the flow and enjoyment of their conversations.
