Aphasia is a language disorder that impairs the expression and understanding of spoken language, reading and writing. It occurs most often from a stroke or brain injury. This frustrating condition affects a person’s ability to communicate, but does not affect his or her intellect.
Aphasia affects more than 2½ million Americans. It robs one of the ability to communicate, cutting people off from their family, friends, health care providers, and everyday life.
The Adler Aphasia Center provides a therapeutic environment of innovative programs that give people with aphasia and their caregivers ways to reconnect with life. The Center is committed to provide help for those living with aphasia and their caregivers and to expand awareness and knowledge of aphasia.
As one of only a few aphasia-friendly communities in the world, we provide a therapeutic environment of innovative programs that give people ways to live successfully with aphasia. Through life skills activities, the arts, literature, technology, cooking, nature, and fitness our programs help members stimulate communication skills; exercise cognitive skills; build self-esteem; and rebuild social connections.
