Established in 1987, the Dalhousie Aphasia Clinic is run through the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders. The Clinic offers a variety of programs for adults with aphasia.
What is aphasia?
Aphasia is an impairment in the ability to communicate as a result of brain injury. Because communication is central to our interactions with others, aphasia has a broad impact. It affects social, vocational and emotional aspects of an individual's life as well as that of his or her loved ones.
Who can use our services?
Our clients are adults with all types of aphasia, at all levels of impairment, and at every age. Adults with chronic aphasia - many years post onset - can benefit from intensive treatment.
