APHASIA CENTER TRAINS VOLUNTEERS


The Adler Aphasia Center, located in Maywood, NJ, will offer a volunteer training workshop on Thursday, April 5, 2007 from 9 am to 1 pm. Aphasia, a communication disorder usually as a result of a stroke or other brain injury, can affect a person’s ability to speak, read, write or comprehend language but does NOT affect their intellect. Volunteers dedicate their time and efforts at the Center working alongside people with aphasia to help them learn to communicate in a comfortable atmosphere using alternative methods of communication such as: drawing, gesturing, writing, and more.The training workshop, led by two speech-language pathologists, will feature aphasia education, communication tips & strategies, computer coaching and hands on experience working with the members with aphasia. This four hour training allows new volunteers to learn the skills they need to communicate with people with aphasia and an opportunity for current volunteers to sharpen their skills in order to facilitate one of the fifty activities offered at the Center on a weekly basis.

For more information about the Center or to learn about volunteer opportunities at the Center, please contact Kirsten Rani Almeida, Volunteer Coordinator, at 201-368-8585 or visit us on the web at www.AdlerAphasiaCenter.org. The Adler Aphasia Center is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization.
