About Us

The Purdue Aphasia Group is a collaboration between researchers and clinicians in the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at Purdue University. We are dedicated to providing research opportunities, resources, education, and clinical services for people with aphasia, their caregivers, and SLPs.

The Purdue Aphasia Research Lab seeks to understand how aphasia affects communication and develop ways to treat aphasia and recover language abilities. Interested in participating in our research?  We have several studies in which a person with aphasia can participate. Please see our website for more info here. Or, contact us at aphasia@purdue.edu or by phone 765-496-0216.

In addition to research, the Purdue Aphasia Group offers various services for the aphasia community such as an Aphasia Support Group that meets once a month during the semester. The M.D. Steer Speech and Language Clinic at Purdue University conducts evaluations and provides treatment for adults with language difficulties, including aphasia. The clinic also offers group therapy sessions.

Please see our website for more details here.
