We are seeking people with aphasia for a three day program at Pace University. The Pace University Aphasia Intensive will be held from Tuesday, January 16 to Thursday, January 18, 2018. The program will run from 10 am to 1 pm each day.
The purpose is to provide three days of intensive conventional aphasia therapy, in order to see if improvements can be seen in a very short time. We hope to use what we learn in order to offer more aphasia intensives in the future.
