Aphasia Therapy

Aphasia Boot Camp

This four-week intensive program empowers stroke survivors to maximize their communication potential and enhance life participation. Research shows that an individual's recovery is not over at the one-year mark. There is much more to be gained.

Licensed speech-language pathologists lead the program with the assistance of graduate student clinicians.

Each day will include:
  • One hour of individual therapy
  • One hour of group therapy
  • One hour of rotating therapy (computer, individual, group)
  • Weekly caregiver support group
Program Goals:
  • Provide the best, yet affordable service available.
  • Value the client, the family, and their goals.
  • Focus on individualized, functional results that make day-to-day life as close to normal as possible.
  • Establish a maintainable base of skills from which to grow.
