This is the MAAC (Mid-Aphasia Aphasia Conference) Aphasia Support Group. We will meet monthly on Zoom, with Special Guests on September, December, March, and June. This will be a safe place to meet people with aphasia, share their stories (successes and struggles), and information.
You will receive a link for Zoom one week before and on the day of the event.
Please email Mark Harder at email@example.com for questions.
The Academy of Aphasia is an organization made up of researchers who study the language problems of people who have neurological diseases. Some of these researchers also provide clinical services to help people improve their language skills following strokes or other illnesses. Although this web site is primarily for the service of members, we have provided a few links containing general information for people with aphasia.

Aphasia Nation – The Mission
The purpose of Aphasia Nation is to educate the wider public about aphasia (loss of language) and especially all healthcare providers and hospitals. About 25-40% of people with stroke acquire aphasia yet few in the public are aphasia “aware”.
But beyond aphasia awareness, educating the public about neuroplasticity, the foundation of all learning, is the next step. Stroke survivors and people with aphasia have learned about plasticity the hard way. The rest of the population need to learn about it too. Learning a new language, mastering algebra or relearning one’s language and rewiring one’s brain after a stroke all possess the same ability of plasticity, whether healthy or not. firstname.lastname@example.org

Aphasia is an impairment of language, affecting the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to read or write. Aphasia is always due to injury to the brain-most commonly from a stroke, particularly in older individuals. But brain injuries resulting in aphasia may also arise from head trauma, from brain tumors, or from infections. an answer to this item.
Group meets 3rd Wednesday of the month, 4:30-6 PM.

Bucks County Stroke Support Group
In 2019 Just ASK held the first ever "Aphasia Conference" in RI, and it is now an annual event held in June (Aphasia Awareness Month). This year's conference focused on health and wellness and was held in a Zoom format (check out the videos here)
Step inside the Aphasia Resource Center at Boston University College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College. You’ll sense very quickly that we are truly a community—individuals with aphasia, their families and friends interacting with clinicians, researchers and students. We provide a place not only for learning to live with aphasia but also for sharing experiences with others touched by the disorder. Since 2006, we’ve offered an expanding mix of resources for aphasia therapy, support, socialization, education and advocacy.
