The Aphasia Center of California offers second opinion aphasia assessments conducted by Roberta Elman, Ph.D. During the assessment session, Dr. Elman uses a battery of formal and informal evaluation measures to determine a speech-language diagnosis.

Following this session, she creates a written report including individualized communication strategies that can be used for more effective communication. For clients who continue their aphasia treatment at other facilities, Dr. Elman highlights recommendations for the treatment team with regard to potential communication goals and specific treatment methods.
