The SAS speech and language therapists, Chris and Clare recently led a project to create an entry for The United Kingdom Acquired Brain Injury Forum (UKABIF) Film Award 2018. Clare tells the story …
“Chris and I used it as a project for the conversation group to discuss and decide what their key message would be to others to allow them to understand better what would help people living with the challenges of stroke. The groups all came up with the same message about needing people to give them more time. The groups then came up with ideas of how to get this message across and some of these were used in the film. There were lots of great ideas and the challenge was fitting something into the 30 second remit!! The making of the film was challenging and not everyone was around for the filming but hopefully their ideas were captured. It was a fun few weeks and hopefully the film will help increase awareness and can be viewed on YouTube!”
Go to YouTube and search for UKABIF Film Award 2018 and click on the Success After Stroke entry. I think you will agree it is a fantastic effort by all those involved, including Anna who made the film. Thank you.
The following is the remit followed;
