Culturally and linguistically diverse aphasia rehabilitation

The experiences of people with aphasia and interpreters

This study will ask about your experience of aphasia rehabilitation.

We want to use your experiences to design solutions for better rehabilitation and better services for diverse people with aphasia.

We want to interview you if:

  • you have aphasia after a stroke,
  • you speak a language other than English,
  • you or your parent/s were born overseas, and
  • you live in Sydney or Melbourne.

What will I be asked to do?

A speech pathologist will interview you with the help of an interpreter.

The interview will take about one hour.

The interview will be video recorded.

Where will the research take place?

The interview can be done at your home. Or it can be at Concord Hospital (in Sydney).

If we cannot meet face-to-face, we might interview you in a Zoom video-call.
