Parenting is no easy feat, but can be particularly challenging when one parent has aphasiaParenting with Aphasia meets virtually once a month, inviting parents with kids of all ages to join together in a safe, non-judgmental space to share experiences, receive positive peer support, and learn more about how other parents are navigating the highs and lows of modern-day parenting when aphasia is along for the ride. This group is for persons with aphasia. We plan to have sessions where both parents join, but the majority of sessions will be for persons with aphasia.
