About the Talk:

For someone with aphasia, conversations may be difficult. They may have difficulty with:

  • speaking
  • understanding language
  • reading and / or
  • writing.

​Following a stroke or brain injury, adults with aphasia find themselves unable to or limited in their ability to express their feelings, thoughts and desires. As aphasia is rarely understood by people in the community, this disorder can cause individuals to withdraw from communicating with friends and/or family members.

About The Halton Aphasia Centre: 

The Halton Aphasia Centre, operating as the Halton-Peel Community Aphasia Programs  (H-PCAP), is a not-for-profit organization that provides conversation group therapy for people with aphasia. Our groups follow a life participation approach – enhancing the communication skills and quality of life of people with aphasia.

​Group therapy sessions are facilitated by Speech-Language Pathologists and Communicative Disorders Assistants, with the support of a registered Social Worker, trained volunteers, and students. ​​
