Aphasia is a loss of language due to stroke, traumatic brain injury or other neurologic event.
Each year, nearly 80,000 people will develop difficulties with speaking, writing, reading and listening skills due to aphasia.
At the Robbins Speech, Language and Hearing Center at Emerson College, individual and group speech therapy services are available for adults with aphasia. The therapy is provided by our graduate students and supervised by certified and licensed speech-language pathologists / Clinical Instructors.
Each year, graduate students, clinical instructors, academic faculty and many of our clients participate in Aphasia Awareness Day to raise awareness about aphasia and advocate for additional services for this population.
