Building Community

Amplify is committed to offering community resources accessible to everyone. 

Social engagement reduces our risk of cognitive decline, improves physical and mental wellbeing and offers support to others struggling with a communication or cognitive challenge. 

Together we can make Lane County a healthier place to live.

Aphasia Conversation Group

A free service to the community

Communication is the glue that binds us together in families and communities.

This conversation group is dedicated to revitalizing that connection for individuals living with aphasia. Sessions alternate between hands-on activities and language rich exercises to reinforce keywords and topics from our previous meeting. Whether you've experienced a stroke, brain injury, Parkinson's, or are dealing with a new or long-standing diagnosis, join us in supporting each other’s journey for better communication.

Meetings held the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 2 - 3 PM at Campbell Community Center.

Registration is a two-step process. Schedule a 15-30 minute screen with Amplify, then register online with EugeneRec or by calling 541-682-5318 after May 2.

All participants must have a diagnosis of acquired aphasia either documented from a previous medical encounter or by completing a communication screen with Amplify Speech Therapy.
