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.

The Snyder Center for Aphasia Life Enhancement (SCALE) is a specialty program at The League for People with Disabilities in Towson, Maryland. SCALE improves the quality of life for people living with aphasia and their families by:
SCALE utilizes the Life Participation Approach to Aphasia which emphasizes individual choice, increased life participation, resources for all those affected by aphasia, and addressing personal/environmental communication factors.

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.
Communication is key to person-centered health care and meaningful life. Aphasia Access empowers healthcare professionals, interdisciplinary teams, speech-language pathologists, and community advocates.
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
ARC is a non-profit organization that was founded by a stroke survivor and his mother after they faced the same challenges that many of you face everyday. ARC’s mission is to end the isolation of aphasia by connecting families who are on the journey they know so well. Throughout the years, ARC has grown to become a community of thousands of families who connect online and at aphasia events. We are continually inspired by the stories of aphasia warriors, and we encourage you to join our community and share your story.
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.
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.
This group meets once a month for guided conversation practice, education, resource sharing, and connection with others.
The group is currently led by Michelle Gutmann, PhD, CCC-SLP, and SLHS Purdue Graduate Students.
Both persons with aphasia and their loved ones/caregivers are invited to attend.
