The Adler Aphasia Center knows that ongoing advancement of the professional knowledge base is vital to providing meaningful services to people with aphasia. Because of this, we are committed to offering continuing education opportunities for health care professionals.

We offer in-service informational programs for staff at hospitals, rehab centers, long-term care facilities, home health agencies, and other organizations.

We also host annual CEU programs for speech-language pathologists.

Check this site often for program updates and additions. Learn more about the types of sessions we offer on the Community Training Opportunities page.

Contact us to discuss details or arrange for Adler Aphasia Center staff and members to conduct an aphasia/communication in-service at your facility. Each year, the Adler Aphasia Center teams up with the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department from a local university to host a professional workshop for speech-language pathologists. We are pleased to bring world-renowned aphasia researchers and clinicians in to share their expertise.
