About the Adler Aphasia Center
The Adler Aphasia Center, a non-profit organization based in Maywood, N.J., is a post-rehabilitative therapeutic center that addresses the long-term needs of people with aphasia and their families, a language disorder caused by stroke or other brain injury. With over 1,000,000 people diagnosed with aphasia in the U.S., it is the only center of its kind in the New York-New Jersey area, a region that contains an estimated 20,000 people with aphasia. The Adler Aphasia Center at JCC MetroWest, our newest satellite program, partially funded by the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey, The Grotta Fund for Senior Care of the Jewish Community Foundation of MetroWest NJ and The Hyde and Watson Foundation, opened its doors in May, 2012 in West Orange, N.J. The programs and activities offered at the Adler Aphasia Center and facilitated by speech language pathologists, all share the primary goals of enhancing the communication skills of its members, providing opportunities for social and peer support, and building members’ self-esteem and self-confidence. The Center offers training and educational programs in order to share its unique model of care with a national and international audience of health care professionals, consumers, educators, students, speech-language pathologists and others interested in improving the quality of life for those persons affected by aphasia. In addition, the Center is actively engaged in research efforts that examine the impact of its programs and offer innovative approaches to individual treatment. Collaboration efforts are also maintained with aphasia researchers worldwide. Adler Aphasia Center was awarded top prize as Rehabilitation Center of the Year at the 2011 NJBIZ Healthcare Heroes Award Program. The Center is also the recipient of the 2011 Nonprofit Leadership Award from Children’s Aid and Family Services. Founded in 2003 by Elaine and Mike Adler, its mission is simple: to be a vital resource to anyone whose life or profession is touched by aphasia.
