About us


At Friends of Aphasia, we are dedicated to truly changing the lives of individuals and families living with aphasia through the following endeavors:

  • providing high-quality, patient-centered aphasia services, including a comprehensive aphasia group program, community support teams, and technology resources, to anyone who might benefit
  • developing and implementing community education, advocacy, and outreach programs
  • promoting research aimed at advancing innovative and effective aphasia treatment approaches


Through these efforts, we aim to give real hope to those struggling to speak, understand, read, and write.

A world in which aphasia does not limit quality of life.

Friends of Aphasia strives to enhance the lives of those living with aphasia, including individuals who have aphasia, their families, and their community, through efforts to support the following:

• access to quality, patient-centered aphasia therapy services focused on participation in meaningful life activities;
• development and implementation of community education, advocacy, and outreach programs; and
• research aimed at advancing innovative and effective aphasia treatment approaches.

We embrace the Life Participation Approach to Aphasia (LPAA)

• LPAA is a general philosophy and model of service delivery (not a specific type of therapy)
• Focus is on re-engagement in life
• Places the life concerns of those affected by aphasia at the center of all decision making
