Abi Roper spoke at the East Midlands Stroke Association Support Team Meeting in Nottingham on the 24th March 2014. She took the floor alongside one of the people who recently participated in EVA Park and his wife.
Abi was the participant’s support worker in EVA Park for 5 weeks and worked towards goals of chairing a meeting, giving a speech, organising a fun day and project managing the building of a new area within EVA Park! The participant and his wife talked about their personal experiences of stroke and aphasia, followed by a summary of their enjoyable experiences working on research projects at City University London, and EVA Park in particular. Abi gave her opinions of her experience working in EVA Park, and provided video examples, a description and an explanation of EVA Park.
