  Aphasia Support Group for Stroke Survivors  
Hosted By: Speech-Language Institute at Salus University

The Speech Language Institute (SLI) of Salus University will begin to host an aphasia support group on the second Thursday of each month from 1 to 2 p.m. beginning September 14, 2017. The group is designed to assist both stroke survivors with aphasia and their loved ones. Aphasia – difficulty understanding and producing speech properly – is one of the most common speech-language deficits people may have after suffering from a stroke. According to one of the group’s creators, clinical educator Alison Finkelstein, MA, CCC-SLP, the goal of the support group is “to provide a forum for individuals with aphasia and their loved ones to participate in a social, informative, and supportive environment.”

Speech-language pathologists at SLI provide aphasia assessment and treatment plans for stroke victims. They can evaluate the client’s current deficit levels in speech-language and provide a customized treatment program tailored to each client’s individual needs. SLI is also a member of the National Aphasia Association. To RSVP to the open house, or for more information about the aphasia support group, contact Ms. Finkelstein at afinkelstein@salus.edu or 215.780.3150.
