Computer Club

The Computer Club was started in 2001 for members to learn more about computers.

The Computer Club meets on Monday afternoons at Burnside in Adelaide.

Up to 12 members attend the Computer Club each week.

 

In the club, members:

  • Learn about computers and what they can do
  • Do a range of lessons, including internet based lessons and quizzes
  • Use computers to help their speech and language
  • Use computers for games
  • Use computers for looking at the Internet and email
  • Practise conversational skills in a relaxed environment

Students often volunteer to come along.  They give lessons and help members.

Computer Club - Christmas lunch

After the computer group, members go to a nearby coffee shop to have a coffee and chat. A couple of times a year, the group goes out for lunch.

Please contact the Talkback Association if you want to join a Computer Club and learn about using computers

Retune Choir
Every Tuesday during school term, the Retune choir meets at The Sanctuary in Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre.

Under the leadership of talented conductor Lauren Hollis, the choir has continued to grow since it started in May 2011.

Anyone with aphasia and their carers are invited to join. It is better to join at the beginning of a term to get the most enjoyment and benefit from the choir.

The choir performs for family and friends on the last Tuesday in each term.

The afternoons start at 2pm at Hampstead and run for about 1 hour.

Talkback has been supported to run Retune by a grant from the City of Port Adelaide Enfield and staff at Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre.

Ring the Talkback office on 8443 5555 for more details.

Carers' Group
A Carers' Group meets a couple of times a year.  Check the newsletter or contact the office if you are interested in finding out about carers meetings.
