Difficulty communicating can be a problem for people of all ages and for a lot of different reasons. However, many older adults will acquire a communication disorder later in life following stroke or brain injury. These individuals may have difficulty making speech understood or understanding others; coming up with the right words when talking; remembering details of what someone has said; or speaking smoothly and fluently. The Speech and Language Support Group for Adults was created to provide adults in our community with an acquired communication disorder a supportive and non-judgmental environment to socialize, learn, and recover.
