The Mid-Atlantic Aphasia Conference is an independent aphasia support group created by members from Hopewell Township, Levittown, and Philadelphia aphasia support groups. The intention of creating this group is to connect people living with aphasia as well as those who care for individuals with aphasia, in the tri-state area.
The Aphasia Resource Collaboration Hub (ARCH) is committed to establishing a network of clinicians, researchers, university clinic faculty, support group leaders, and persons with aphasia in our region.
PACT is the Philadelphia Aphasia Community at Temple. We are people with aphasia, working with a group of students and colleagues with aphasia working on getting better.
About the Center
Founded in 1996, the MossRehab Aphasia Center meets the long-term communication and psychosocial needs of individuals who have been affected by aphasia. It is a warm and welcoming place where people can find information and peer support, as well as participate in research and treatment.
This support group is for individuals who have sustained aphasia or some form of communication disorder from a neurological condition. This group is meant for patients as well as their loved ones to meet other people who share similar circumstances. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their experiences, share ideas, form friendships and provide emotional support for one another.
Aphasia Support: This group offers an opportunity to meet others with language difficulties and to share strategies for achieving success in communication.

I had a heart attack and stroke and am living with aphasia and low vision. I had to relearn how to write and read again. I started writing poems and wondered if anyone else wrote poems after their stroke. I was so happy to find A Stroke of Poetry. I felt understood and connected, from Pennsylvania to Australia. Shelagh Brennand is a stroke advocate and an aphasia advocate and make a friend and ally. - Mark Harder (Poems in Speech)

Animals have always been a part of my life. Growing up with a multitude of animals inside and outside it seemed they were just an extension of myself. I love them all from the furry, to feathers and even the scaly. In every occupation I have had, I dedicated myself to either taking care of animals, protecting them or the environment in one way or another. https://eclipsepetportraits.wordpress.com
