News Update on the Aphasia Communication Cafe
The Online Aphasia Communication Cafe is a Success !!

In the past, having aphasia caused social isolation - but not anymore!  People with aphasia are now chatting with other people with aphasia about everyday life: kids, grandkids, movies, even politics.  They are meeting new people and making new friends from all over the US, Canada and the world.  They have joined the social network on the  Online Aphasia Communication Café .

They are using the simplicity of videoconferencing ( www.oovoo.com ) to accomplish this from the comfort of their own homes.  Please feel free to contact Bill Connors should you have any questions or comments -- bill@aphasiatoolbox.com or 724-494-2534.
