Introductory Program

The Introductory Program is a beacon of light for clients with aphasia and their families.  Throughout this 12-week program, professional staff and volunteers work with clients and families to understand aphasia and provide them with strategies to communicate in new ways and make meaningful connections with those around them.

The Introductory Program is the first step in restoring confidence and improving coping skills for those affected by aphasia, giving clients and their families a plan on how to live successfully with aphasia.
