Summary

This book focuses explicitly on therapeutic techniques developed from a social model approach to disability and learning to live with difference. It describes theories, activities and methods of implementation developed from the work of Connect with people with long term aphasia. "Theoretical discussion runs alongside practical ideas for therapy and evaluation, case studies and commentaries from the authors regarding the method and means of implementation." Synthesises theory and practice in this new area of service delivery. Its non-impairment led focus of the therapies means that it has wide appeal to therapists, health service professionals and volunteers who work with people with chronic disabilities affecting lifestyle and communication.
