ILW Film Screening – The Diving Bell and the Butterfly – Wednesday 19th February

As part of Innovative Learning Week, we’ll be showing the award-winning adaptation of Jean-Dominique Bauby’s memoirs. Paralysed by a stroke, Bauby transcribed his memoirs letter-by-letter from his hospital bed, blinking as his interlocutor reached the right letter in the alphabet.

Both a powerfully emotional film and an insight into alternative communication methods employed by therapists working with severely speech impaired patients.
