Is Our Aphasia Program a Good Fit for You?

Because of our individualized, life-participation approach, the likely answer is yes. Our intensive aphasia treatment program can help you find your voice after a stroke, illness or head injury. We offer intensive speech language therapy tailored to each client.

While our intensive program is full time, we do offer other opportunities and therapy plans for those who may be looking for other options. Please contact us at (734) 764-8440 or visit our University of Michigan Aphasia Program website.
