NMMC's Aphasia Support Group for individuals with aphasia to interact with others and learn strategies for communication. Aphasia is an impairment of language, affecting the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to write. Aphasia is always caused by injury to the brain—most commonly from a stroke, particularly in older individuals. Brain injuries resulting in aphasia may also arise from head trauma or infections. Participants are welcome to bring their lunch. Licensed, certified speech pathologists will lead the group.
