Teletherapy for Aphasia Treatment

News, UMAP

After a successful trial period, the U-M Aphasia Program (UMAP) is now offering teletherapy services — therapy offered via a secure online connection — to former or current clients as well as clients who are local and have recently received care for stroke or TBI recovery through Michigan Medicine. 

Teletherapy is conducted similarly to our in-house therapy sessions. Licensed Speech-Language Pathologists administer therapy and tailor their approach to each client’s individual needs — but without the client having to leave home. A teletherapy client needs access to a computer with an internet connection, a camera, and a speaker to participate.

Locations and Options

We are currently licensed to offer teletherapy in several states, including Michigan, California, Georgia, Wisconsin, Iowa, Alabama, Virginia, and Florida, with other licensing in process. If you are a former or current client, please let us know if you are interested in teletherapy as an option for continuing or resuming your therapy with the U-M Aphasia Program.

For more information or questions, contact the University of Michigan Aphasia Program at (734) 764-8440 or email at
