Aphasia Communication Group Program

This group program accepts self-referrals as well as referrals from speech-language pathologists in Nova Scotia. All group participants have had previous individual speech-language therapy.
The group focuses on maintaining communication strategies learned in individual therapy, developing new communication strategies, stimulating all communication modalities (i.e., speaking, listening, reading and writing), and serving as a support system.
