APHASIA is a communication disorder that robs individuals of their ability to speak, understand, read, and write.  It is caused by damage to the language areas of the brain.  Typically, it results from a stroke, but it can also be caused by a traumatic brain injury, a brain tumor, a brain infection, or brain degeneration.

Imagine struggling to say your own name.  Imagine not being able to write a simple email.  Imagine not being able to read the newspaper.  These are realities for individuals living with aphasia.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with aphasia, you probably know all too well the frustration and social isolation that can result from this devastating disorder.  The Aphasia Center of Tucson (ACT) is here to help.

The Aphasia Center of Tucson is the only comprehensive aphasia program of its kind in Arizona. We offer the following:

  • structured group sessions aimed at helping individuals with aphasia improve their communication skills
  • individualized computer coaching in our computer lab
  • a community of support and camaraderie
  • educational lectures
  • advocacy projects
  • carepartner support groups
  • organized community outings (e.g., dinners, movies, museum tours)

Individual aphasia therapy by a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist is also available.
