The IU Aphasia Support Group is for adults with aphasia who are motivated to work toward improving communication effectiveness. It is especially appropriate for individuals who have already completed a rehabilitation program, or who acquired aphasia several years ago. Small group therapy sessions are held weekly and are designed to maximize communication abilities in everyday situations.
Spouse/Partner(s) and other significant communication partners are also welcome to attend a special Family and Friends Support Group that runs concurrently with the client group. Members of the group participate in sharing of resources and experiences as well as didactic educational discussions.
Group meetings are held at the IU Speech and Hearing Clinic on the Bloomington campus during the fall, spring and summer university semesters from 5-6 p.m. Parking is available directly in front of the clinic. An online option is also available for both the Family and Client groups. Contact Laura Karcher to obtain links firstname.lastname@example.org
