I must say “job well done” to the Aphasia Corner blog. Someone at Connect, a communication disability network that publishes the blog, gets it.
The blog is chocked full of information. That’s good. And expected.
But beyond that, the blog is readable for people with mild aphasia or for caregivers who are most likely older, less technology-savvy adults. It’s approachable for people like me, new to the world of aphasia, with posts for caregivers, using computers and augmentative devices, and talks with experts.
Entering design-speak here, Aphasia Corner uses lots of white space, large type, and spacious leading to make it much easier to read or skim. It also seems to be written from a larger perspective, not from a clinical or therapeutic point of view. No “inside baseball” here.
For some reason — and I find this ironic — many websites and blogs covering aphasia and other speaking disorders are molasis-dense with information, headlines, links — all the usual clutter that makes sites so difficult to read and navigate.
