Brain Buddy is dedicated to helping those affected by aphasia.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization

Spring 2020 Aphasia Program

 Due to scheduling conflicts and travel of key volunteers during the Spring semester, Brain Buddy will be taking a break from formal activities in the first half of 2020. This means that we will not offer the regular Monday program between January and May as we have done in past years. Occasional informal gatherings may still occur and we encourage people to go out together for coffee and other activities as they choose. 

Aphasia is an impairment of language.  It interferes with the abilities to listen, read, talk, and write. Aphasia most often results from stroke.  Those with aphasia may have difficulty with daily tasks and may require various levels of assistance depending on the severity of their aphasia.

Aphasia is a loss of language skills, not intellect.  Unless there is other brain damage, people with aphasia usually maintain the same cognitive capacity as before the onset of their aphasia, they simply now struggle with communication.
