Aphasia is a language disorder caused by stroke or other brain injury. It affects spoken language, reading and writing, but does not affect one’s intellect.
The Adler Aphasia Center noow offers an Aphasia Communication Group for stroke and brain injury survivors with aphasia. This group meets on two Friday mornings a month at their Center located at 60 West Hunter Avenue in Maywood. It offers people with aphasia an opportunity to socialize with others who share similar experiences, provide tips to communicate more effectively, and provide time to practice communication skills in a natural environment.
This group will be led by one of the Center’s licensed speech-language pathologists. Groups are offered from 10 am to 12 noon on two Fridays each month. A person with aphasia may join the group at any time, but must pre-register. The group also provides an introduction to the Adler Aphasia Center, but membership to the Center is not required to attend this group.
To learn more about this group and to pre-register, please contact Karen Castka, M.S., CCC-SLP, at 201.368.8585 or by email at kcastka @ adleraphasiacenter. org.
