To assist people who need special accommodations or may experience difficulties interacting with police, a UNT Rehabilitation Studies student and a UNT Police Officer created a Special Accommodations ID Card.

"This card lists personal characteristics an individual may want a first responder to understand in order to have the most effective interaction with the individual. It can be used by anyone who wants first responders to know information about them before an interaction begins."

Read more about it at the College of Health and Public Service website.

The UNT Speech and Hearing Center is hosting “Walking Strong-On the Road to Recovery for Aphasia”. It is a walk-a-thon that will be held Sunday, October 16th 2016 at the Denton Civic Center.

Aphasia is a language impairment affecting verbal expression, comprehension, reading, and writing, which most commonly results from a left hemisphere stroke. Those who are living with aphasia often struggle with language, hindering their ability to function normally at home or in the work setting. In Denton County alone there are approximately 3,000 people living with aphasia and less than 50 of these people are currently receiving services available. Yes, less than 50!

So come join “the walk” to raise support and awareness for those living with this life-altering disorder in and around Denton County! Proceeds will directly benefit the UNT Aphasia Support Group as well as provide education about aphasia and rehabilitation services to those attending the event.

To register for this event, please download and fill out the registration form.

For further questions regarding the event, please email us at walkingstrong4aphasia@gmail.com
