STARS ProgramUsing Technology to Participate in Life
Social / Technology/ Aphasia / Return to life / Speech
The Danniella Muheim STARS Technology Program provides hands-on training and support for people with aphasia and their families in the use of technology in a fun and social environment. Technology may be used to augment communication, for home practice, for connecting with friends and family, or to return to work and life!
The STARS Technology Program has three components:
- Just You and Me
Individualized sessions with our STARS coordinator to help you and your family decide what technology is right for you. Talk to our coordinator about scheduling one or more sessions to learn about your options by emailing: email@example.com or calling 727.249.1953
- The Workshop
Our group learning and technology sharing sessions are facilitated by a trained professional. Learn more about how to use technology and improve communication in real-life situations in these friendly group sessions.
- Group Outings
Bring your new skills and all your hard work out into the world where you really want to be! Use your technology supports in a planned community outing with other members and our team!
