Virtual Community Class: Book Club with Reading2Connect

May 26, 2021 @ 2:30 pm EDT

After identifying the barriers our patients encounter when attempting to read, Reading2Connect experimented with a variety of modifications to text, language, graphic layout, content and illustrations to increase the readability of printed material for seniors. Applying these adaptations, Reading2Connect developed a collection of short books/articles that most memory-challenged seniors can enjoy independently. Today, Susan will read and discuss 3 adapted books. By the end of the session, we hope older adults are able to genuinely express themselves, recall treasured memories, and connect deeply with others.

This event will take place at the AFA Teal Room.
