University of Michigan Aphasia Community: 2023 Dates Announced


The University of Michigan Aphasia Community (UMAC) is excited to announce new dates for the 2023 sessions.

UMAC is a group communication program where you can meet others with aphasia, while boosting your language skills in a supportive environment.

All members of the aphasia community are welcome and invited to join us, you do not have to be a client of the University of Michigan Aphasia (UMAP) program to attend.

The group typically runs in monthly, four-week sessions. However, you can join the group at anytime — you don’t have to wait for another monthly session to begin.

Who: Michigan residents with aphasia
2 – 3:30 p.m., EST.
Date: Wednesdays
Location: Zoom
Cost: $140, which includes 4 sessions (no refunds for missed sessions).

Talk with your peers about current events, share personal stories and take part in language building activities. Groups will target verbal expression, multimodal communication and auditory comprehension through creative activities.

Facilitated by a certified Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP), and a clinical fellow, interns, or volunteers.
