The Aphasia Center of Tucson currently offers its group program on Mondays and Wednesdays. Individuals decide at the beginning of the semester whether they would like to join us on one or both days each week. Most members choose to participate both days, which enhances the feeling of camaraderie among the members, increases the variety of group choices, and, importantly, maximizes communication recovery. However, other personal commitments or the availability of spots in the program may allow attendance on only one day per week. Tuition fees for 2 days per week and 1 day per week are provided below.
FOR 6-WEEK SEMESTERS (Spring Semester, Summer Semester)
FOR 12-WEEK SEMESTERS (Fall Semester, Winter Semester)
NOTE: For the convenience of our group members, tuition may be paid in a single payment for the entire semester OR in monthly installments.
The evaluation fee for new participants: $180
Prior to participation in the program, new members must be scheduled for an evaluation of communication skills (speaking, understanding, writing, reading). Findings from this evaluation will be used to help determine goals together and to assist group facilitators in planning appropriate group activities. Don't worry if you have a lot of trouble getting words out - we will only do what we can do, and we can take a lot of breaks. If necessary, the evaluation can be divided into two sessions.
