ABOUT THE APHASIA LANGUAGE-SUPPORT GROUPS

Student-run aphasia groups take place for ninety minutes per week for the duration of every semester.  We host three to four groups per semester including a book club, depending on participant interest.

Groups are capped at ten participants and are designed as a safe place to practiceaphasia party 1 communication, to ask questions, and to receive and provide feedback to others aphasia.  Discussions tend to include topical current world and local events.  We have debates, strategize about how to handle difficult communicative environments (for example, loud restaurants) and play language games designed to increase word finding.  Our participants vary in severity.  Some can speak only a few words and some are very fluent but want to work on getting a bit faster.  We accommodate all ability levels.  

We encourage you to try aphasia group.  The only way to improve your language is to USE IT!  To sign up or to try a session, please contact me directly at 860-420-9828.
