Medical research indicates intense therapy over a short period of time can improve speech and language abilities for stroke patients with aphasia. North Memorial’s Stroke Center is the first in the region to offer an Intensive Aphasia Program (IAP), innovative outpatient program that includes many hours of intense therapy over the course of several weeks.
The program is designed to help participants relearn old ways or develop new alternative ways of communicating. Patients participate in a combination of individual and group treatments sessions for approximately three and a half hours per day, five days a week.
To help prospective participants and their caregivers plan ahead, sessions available in 2014 are listed below. To download a program brochure and application form, click here.
