Aphasia is an impairment of language, affecting the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to read or write. Aphasia is caused by injury to the brain - most commonly from a stroke.The agenda for our monthly meetings includes a short business meeting followed by an activity to build language skills, such as a guided discussion, a guest speaker or a movie. During the last part of the meeting the aphasia survivors and co-survivors meet separately to discuss a topic or to share concerns. After the meeting there is an opportunity to go to a local restaurant for dinner to continue socialization. Anyone experiencing aphasia and/or their co-survivor(s) is welcome at our meetings.
