Abstract

Aphasia management has traditionally targeted language impairments. However, programs have begun to address other consequences of aphasia such as social isolation, well-being, or participation. One means of addressing these consequences is via an “aphasia center.” An online survey was developed and distributed in order to learn more about aphasia centers in North America. Thirty one respondents provided information (e.g. demographics, mission/goals, admission and discharge criteria, funding sources, programming). The data were analyzed via frequency counts and charts, as well as qualitatively by identifying key themes that helped to describe characteristics of aphasia centers.
