You are receiving this email because you are a stroke, brain injury or aphasia community group leader or other professional that works with persons with aphasia. As you all know, June is National Aphasia Awareness Month. This year's host group is the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago's Aphasia Advocacy Group, and they have chosen a great theme and designed a beautiful poster for Awareness Month.
The theme is all of the "C's" of aphasia: Confidence, Community, Collaboration, Communicating and Cooperation. A sneak peak of the poster is below. The Awareness Month Packet will include posters, a list of activities that your group, center, or hospital can do to advocate for aphasia as well as celebrate Awareness month, and other aphasia materials.
If you are interested in receiving an Awareness Month Packet, please reply to this email with your name and complete mailing address. Also, please let us know if you would like more information on how to get a Proclamation in your city or state declaring June as National Aphasia Awareness Month.
One more thing - PLEASE let us know how your group, program, hospital, etc celebrated Awareness Month! Please send us pictures and short summaries so that we may include them on our website and Newsletter.
Happy National Aphasia Awareness Month!
