Aphasia: What is it ?
Aphasia is a loss of language resulting from stroke or other brain injury. As an adult communication disability, aphasia affects spoken and written language, namely… speaking, writing, reading, and/or understanding others, but without loss of intellect.
The Aphasia Community Center welcomes all persons with Aphasia in Sarasota and surrounding counties including full-time residents, part-time residents, and extended visitors in Florida.
The Aphasia Community Center (ACC) provides a half-day program for persons with aphasia. Members engage in functional group activities to improve and maintain skills in writing, reading, spoken language, math and related skills. Facilitators use aphasia-friendly materials and supportive techniques. Aphasia Community Center facilitators are trained volunteers including peers with aphasia, family, friends, college students, speech-language pathologists and other community professionals.
