The OSU Aphasia Initiative is a program for persons living with aphasia that provides structured group sessions to facilitate functional communication skills through activities that are enriching, engaging, and meaningful. Recognizing a duty not only to serve persons with aphasia, our mission includes clinical training for the next generation of speech-language pathologists as well as opportunities for members to participate in research.
Your gift to the Aphasia Initiative will support treatment for adults living with communication disability. Over 80,000 new cases of aphasia are diagnosed each year. Due to the severity of injuries, many of our members are not able to return to work or live independently. Our program provides not only speech therapy services, but most importantly, a community and support system.
Thank you for your partnership and helping to further our mission!
