June is Aphasia Awareness month! Learn what you can do to help!
Outreach Program – Aphasia Institute

** Currently offered online only **

In light of COVID-19, Tele-visits are offered in place of home visits. Tele-visits are a phone call between a trained volunteer and a person with aphasia.

Tele-visits help address social isolation and renew self-esteem. *In some circumstances, members and volunteers may use a video conference platform when having these meetings such as Zoom, Facetime or Skype.

The Outreach Program provides support to individuals with Aphasia who may have barriers to attending programs at the Aphasia Institute in person. Home visits are offered from a trained volunteer.

"The training I attended at the Aphasia Institute served to enhance my existing skills in communicating with persons with aphasia and provided me with an abundance of new knowledge and strategies. I feel confident now that I can better communicate with my patients/clients as well as train other professionals and support personnel to communicate effectively with persons with aphasia. The staff are professional and bring a wealth of experience to the table. Great courses!"
