Description

Aphasia affects language, NOT intellect. Most often caused by stroke, brain injury or brain illness, aphasia is an isolating language disorder that affects 120,000 Canadians and over 30,000 adults in Ontario. Supportive conversation groups allow adults living with aphasia to practice communication skills, form meaningful relationships, and improve quality of life. Halton-Peel Community Aphasia Programs members and staff created this video to raise public awareness of aphasia. H-PCAP is a non-profit organization; communication groups are facilitated by a Speech-Language Pathologist, Communicative Disorders Assistant, and a Registered Social Worker.
