Aphasia Support Group
The aphasia group is designed for individuals with speech difficulties. The group focuses on practicing speech and language skills in a group environment, as well as an opportunity to get to know others.
A speech-language therapist or trained staff will lead each Huntington Aphasia Group meeting. The first few minutes will be spent discussing concerns and/or socializing. The aphasia group provides a safe environment to practice speaking with like individuals who also have aphasia. Activities include items such as structured speech games, discussions, and current events. There are occasionally informational sessions of current interests presented by Huntington staff members or outside specialists.
- Facilitated by an in-house speech pathologist.
- Regular attendance is required and notification of absences, sickness or planned vacations is requested in order to maintain group continuity. After three consecutive uninformed absences, your spot will unfortunately be forfeited and given to an individual on the wait list.
- Continued outside involvement with other group members and other stroke support groups are encouraged.
The aphasia group meets every Friday, from 11 AM – 11:45. The aphasia group meets at the Outpatient Rehab located at 630 S. Raymond Ave., Ste 120.
