Conversation assistance builds bridges over language barriers

Many of the refugees coming to Sweden are children, and many of them come unaccompanied.

Interacting with people and authorities of the Swedish society could imply communication difficulties as a result of not speaking the same language. It may also be hard to sometimes put words on experiences or trauma. For that reason photos and images could be a suitable tool to support conversations. Sahlgrenska University Hospital provides a web-based image support, which has been developed for facilitating communication. The images are free to use and can be found here.
