SPARC Holiday festivities

SPARC student clinician dream team this semester

Left to right – Theo, Myles, Alex (CDS undergrad, now grad), Eve, Pauline, Jayme (CDS undergrad, now grad)- missing Alejandra in this picture.

These students worked very hard with their creativity, flexibility, and perseverance.

Their fantastic creativity and clinical work throughout the semester included Alex and Eve (who led a moving, social-justice inspired Aphasia Book Club that got us all hooked),  Theo, Pauline, and Jayme (who led one of the best renditions of aphasia choir we have had and a perfect return from the pandemic to live music), and Myles and Alejandra (who facilitated a novel Therapeutic Gaming group ending with a full-of-laughs finale of White Elephant- clients have already said they want this group to continue).

Every client and their family have expressed how much it meant to have this space, to return from the pandemic, and how grateful they were to our clinicians
