Fall Aphasia Gratitude Socials

Learn About Our In-Person Events

Aphasia Network programs serve stroke and brain injury survivors with aphasia, their care partners as well as students studying in the fields of Speech, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Psychology, Nutrition and Public Health. These are our future medical practitioners and become stewards of the informed practice of serving those with communication disorders. They carry these learnings into their future careers in service to those patients that are yet to be diagnosed.  

Aphasia Camp Northwest

Adventure Weekend

UPDATE: Our 2020 program was cancelled due to COVID-19

If you love Aphasia Camp Northwest, you will love Adventure Weekend! This year at summer camp we will introduce some new activities and focus on goal setting, nature and community - for an adventurous weekend full of new experiences. This camp is an opportunity for aphasia survivors and their care partners to learn new things, try new things, and experience new things. This is a time for attendees to bond through adventures and grow together during safe supported activities. 

            - Explore your goals and experience adventure again

            - Try things that are not part of your everyday routine

            - Experience activities that will help you feel                                 independent

            - Make new friends by being adventurous together
