The ASU Speech and Hearing Clinic offers a summer program for adult clients with chronic aphasia called Aphasia Communication Effectiveness (ACE) to promote Living Well with Aphasia.
ACE is an adult communication program for individuals with chronic aphasia. Any adult with acquired language and/or cognitive abilities may register. All activities center on opportunities and strategies for communication. The program utilizes thematic based discussion on topic that are of interest to adults. There will be large group and smaller group activities based on an individual’s level of communication.
These group sessions are not billable as therapy. All ACE sessions are offered at a program rate for the summer semester and are private pay. New clients will have a consultation/screening appointment prior to week 1 and may need to have a full evaluation if they continue to receive services in the fall or spring. Some returning clients will be asked to come in the week prior to the group so the student clinician can meet you and plan your session.
The sessions are activity based and there will be several groups running at the same time. Participants are grouped based on their interests and level of communication. Some group options include:
ACE program participants are encouraged to come for the entire morning. However, if you prefer to come for two hours instead of three you can join groups based on our hourly session schedule. Sessions will typically run 50 minutes with a short break in between. However, you do need to stick to the scheduled time you request so that we know you are coming. Payment is for the program. We do not bill for ACE on an hourly rate so cost will not be adjusted.
For the ACE program we have several parking or drop off options:
