Aphasia Community Group

Due to the increased spread of the coronavirus through the United States and around the world, Boston University has decided to cancel all on campus meetings and classes effective Monday, March 16, 2020 until further notice.   

As a result, ALL Aphasia Resource Center weekly sessions and monthly Saturday groups hosted on campus will be offered online during this period of time.

Supervisors will be in touch with regard to individual therapy sessions and evaluations.  If you have appointments or sessions with the Aphasia Research Lab, please contact them directly.

These changes are in effect to help keep the community safe and dampen the spread of this virus.  We apologize for the disruption and disappointment these cancellations will cause.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us if you have questions and concerns:  aphasiacenter@bu.edu, (617) 353-0197.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.


Since 1990, the Aphasia Community Group has been providing education, support, socialization and resources for those whose lives are touched by aphasia and related disorders. Each month, group members and guests make presentations on treatment, recreation, community and family support. In the last portion of the meeting, participants divide into small “breakout” sessions to share ideas, feelings, and concerns. Family members meet separately from those with aphasia. Light snacks and beverages are provided.

There is no charge to attend the monthly Saturday Aphasia Community Group. No advance notice or registration is needed.

If you should have any questions or to verify a particular session please contact us at 617-353-0197 or email Leslie Caiola

Faculty: Jerome Kaplan.

All groups meet from 11am-2pm in BU Sargent College, 635 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston MA, Room 102.

Upcoming Community Group Meetings

Given the current social distancing requirement, the monthly in-person Aphasia Community Group is suspended. However, we will offer on-line “drop-in/check-in” sessions periodically. We will send email announcements about these online sessions.
