LUNA: Language Underpins Narrative in Aphasia

Published on by Niamh Devane

Language Underpins Narrative in Aphasia (LUNA) was a research project funded by the Stroke Association that explored a novel discourse treatment in five phases from 2018-2021: (1) synthesising existing work on discourse; (2) surveying Speech and Language Therapists; (3) co-designing LUNA materials; (4) training Speech and Language Therapists; and (5) testing LUNA with people with aphasia.

LUNA is an innovative, creative, and empowering approach to supporting people with aphasia to tell personal narratives. It involves an integrated, personalised therapy targeted at word, sentence, and discourse levels. LUNA provides flexible tools for improving people’s confidence and ability to express themselves through narratives that reflect who they really are.
