SPPARC by Sarah Lock, Ray Wilkinson & Karen Bryan

SPPARC highlights the importance of working with partners in order to create real-life change both for partners and for people with aphasia. The SPPARC pack consists of a manual, CD Rom and DVD and provides: · Practical resources to run support and conversation training programmes either for groups of partners or for the partner and the person with aphasia together as a couple. · Conversation assessment and treatment materials, photocopiable and printable (from the CD Rom) activities and handouts, as well as an introduction to conversational analysis. · A DVD with 27 extracts of everyday conversations between several people with aphasia and their partners, which can be used as a resource both for assessing everyday conversation and for facilitating change. Theoretically validated through the 'Coping with Communicating' research project from University College London, SPPARC goes beyond the theory and provides a complete resource of clinically effective tools to work with people with aphasia and their communication partners.
