Adler Aphasia Center, a non-profit organization with two full service facilities based in Maywood and West Orange, NJ and Aphasia Communication Groups located throughout the state, is an innovative post-rehabilitative therapeutic program that addresses the long-term needs of people with aphasia and their families. Aphasia is a communication disorder that impairs the expression and understanding of spoken language, reading and writing. It occurs most often from a stroke or other brain injury. It affects a person's ability to communicate, but not his or her intellect. The Center's programs are designed to enhance the communication skills of its members and provide opportunities for social and peer support, while building members' self-esteem and confidence. Caregiver needs are addressed through weekly caregier support groups.
