Education & Training

communicationgroup4

We provide community outreach, including consultation regarding available services for those affected by aphasia. In addition, we provide education and training about the use of effective communication techniques for individuals and organizations, both on- and off-site.

Education and training sessions have been conducted at a variety of community organizations, businesses, and corporations whose goal it is to improve communication skills of their staff, thereby improving services and access to persons with aphasia.

Workshops are customized to meet each organization’s needs and are taught by Aphasia Center speech-language pathologists. Workshop participants are instructed in specific communication strategies and all attendees receive practice in applying these techniques in real-life situations. Participants leave with newly acquired skills that can be put to immediate use.
