Aphasia Network Programs

The Aphasia Network offers weekend and workshop programs throughout the year designed to support persons living with aphasia and their care partners. 

2022 Online Programs

Connecting is vital to our aphasia community.

The Aphasia Network board is working on program plans for 2022 in collaboration with our long-term community partner, Pacific University, as well as faculty at Portland Community College and University of Oregon. 

We are hopeful we can hold an in-person program.

Until we can meet in person we will have great online programs.

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.
