NeuroService Alliance


Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology: Our mission is to train competent professionals in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology with an appropriate scientific background, clinical skill and an appreciation for the need to continue learning beyond formal academic training.

The NeuroService Alliance mission is to integrate:

  • Group-based programs for adults with acquired neurogenic communication disorders
  • Interprofessional, experiential student learning
  • Scholarly contributions to the literature

NeuroSA is designed especially for adults who are living with communication disorders such as aphasia, apraxia of speech, and dysarthria by offering a variety of group-based life participation programs for those with acquired neurogenic communication difficulties who are living in Sacramento and surrounding areas.  Under the direction and guidance of founder and director, Dr. Darla K. Hagge CCC-SLP, undergraduate and graduate speech-language pathology students serve as trained communication partners for group members.  NeuroSA provides SacState students an interprofessional experiential learning experience by including students from other health care disciplines as trained guest conversation partners.  NeuroSA is uniquely positioned as a venue for ongoing leadership opportunities, data collection, research projects, and scholarly contributions to the literature.

NeuroSA’s life participation group programs are as follows:

  • AACtive Talkers
  • Aphasia Book Club (ABC)
  • Communication Recovery Groups-Sacramento (CRG-SAC)
  • Communicating Through Art (CTA)
  • Creating Access Through Technology (CATT)
  • Vocally Devoted Choir
  • Peer-Led Family Groups
