On June 7, 2019, Lingraphica’s User Group in Princeton departed from our usual format of meeting at the office. Instead, we headed a few miles down the road to a 42-acre sculpture garden called Grounds for Sculpture. Here's a glimpse into a little bit of what we saw and the fun we had.
A stroke resulting in aphasia can take many things away from an individual, including the ability to travel. Not being able to do the things one loves can often lead to a person with aphasia becoming isolated and depressed. What better way to re-engage in life then going on a cruise with a group of individuals who share their experiences, challenges, and aspirations? From June 1-6, 2019, 89 people with aphasia, caregivers, and speech-language pathologists (SLPs) set sail on an Aphasia Recovery Connection (ARC) cruise from New Jersey to Bermuda to connect with one another. Read on to find out about these cruises and the experiences of the attendees.
In June, both the Adler Aphasia Center and the Triangle Aphasia Project celebrated sixteen years of research, awareness, and advocacy. Both events were proudly sponsored by Lingraphica.
