We at the Aphasia Solutions Network and  thank all of our subscribers, patients, caregivers and SLPs who have served in the defense of their countries.  In this newsletter, we will share with you information about an excellent intensive, residential program for US veterans.   

Are you a VETERAN with aphasia, or a family member of a veteran with aphasia? Are you a healthcare provider for stroke survivors?

If so, the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System would like to hear from you! Please contact us!

The VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System is accepting applications for a new twenty-three day intensive, residential aphasia therapy program taking place in Pittsburgh, PA. PIRATE (Program for Intensive Residential Aphasia Treatment and Education) is accepting referrals nation-wide from within the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), and have already accepted applications from Chicago, Indianapolis, Little Rock and Fort Lauderdale. 

The program has been in operation for a little over one-year, and the aggregated clinical outcomes demonstrated positive changes on three independent measures of communicative functioning.

Patients may apply directly via the PIRATE website at .  Referrals from VHA SLPs are most welcomed and please contact us for instructions on how to refer patients from VHA facilities outside of VISN 4.

Please note candidacy is NOT dependent on length of time post-CVA or neurologic injury, nor on degree of aphasia severity.
