Aphasia conversation group

A group program for adults with aphasia following a stroke or traumatic brain injury.

Aphasia is a significant communication disorder which can limit participation with family and community and impact many areas of life.

The group setting can lend support to people living with aphasia by providing opportunities to participate in natural conversations, develop social connections, learn and practice communication strategies and problem solve with others.

The Aphasia Conversation Group will be run on Thursday afternoons from 3.30 PM to 5.00 PM from 15 July to 16 September 2021. This will be a small group consisting of 3 to 4 participants and a certified Speech-Language Pathologist.

Please call us 02 6281 2311 to register your interest.
