June is Aphasia Awareness Month! On Thursday, June 27th at 3:00 pm CST, Griswold Home Care will present a FREE national webinar workshop titled ‘Aphasia – Making Their Voices Heard’.






Griswold’s Chris Kelly, M. Ed & Director of Learning & Development, will present the fourth installment of the Monthly Solutions Series Webinar. This webinar will be co-hosted by Ellayne S.

This Workshop will include:
Step 1: Review recent research emphasizing the need for increased Aphasia awareness, research and treatment guidelines
Step 2: Uncover stories and experiences clients and family caregivers have shared through social media and client discussion boards
Step 3: Share practical strategies for overcoming communication challenges and improving quality of life
Step 4: Present an Aphasia Solutions toolkit offering interactive tools and resources
