The Tavistock Trust for Aphasia and the ASF team would like to thank Mrs Charmaine Mallinckrodt and the Eranda Rothschild Foundation for their very generous support for this project.

The original design and construction of the website was carried out by Brian Petheram and Julie Ward [member of the team from 2010 – 2016], who at the time, were based at the Bristol Speech & Language Therapy Research Unit.

The software investigations were carried out by Sarah Woodward, Independent Speech & Language Therapist [member of the team from 2010 – 2021].

We are very grateful to Julie and Sarah for their invaluable contributions.

In 2016 Circle Interactive took over technical support and helped to further develop the website, making it a responsive resource to enable accessibility to many more people. They continue to maintain the site and support development.
