Aphasia Community Groups

The National Aphasia Association has links to Community Groups State by State.

Note: The Aphasia Community Groups listed below represent a wide variety of group types and structures. Some consist only of persons with aphasia and their significant others and some are more inclusive. Some are free and some are not. The listing below is alphabetical by state and city. Canadian resources are listed at the end.

Also note: See the end of this roster for the names and numbers of national organizations that may also be able to put you in touch with groups.
