Aphasia Communication Group in Maywood for Stroke Survivors
 
Aphasia Communication Group in Maywood, NJ for Stroke Survivors
 

The Adler Aphasia Center is offering an Aphasia Communication Group for stroke and brain injury survivors with aphasia. The group meets on two Friday mornings a month at their Center located at 60 West Hunter Avenue in Maywood.

Group for Stroke and Brain Injury Survivors with Aphasia

The group 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. 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 group is led by one of the Center’s licensed speech-language pathologists and meets from 10:00 am to 12 noon on two Fridays each month. A person with aphasia may join the group at any time. The group also provides an introduction to the Adler Aphasia Center, but membership to the Center is not required to attend the group. There is a nominal fee to participate.

For more information and to pre-register, contact Karen Castka, M.S., CCC-SLP, at 201-368-8585 or by email at kcastka@adleraphasiacenter.org.
