We would like to share our 2021 Annual Report to the Community with you. The Aphasia Center of California had another outstanding year. In 2021, we provided more than 3,899 visits to individuals and their family members who are living with aphasia. Aphasia Center participants created their own customized treatment plans by choosing from our comprehensive array of speech-language and recreational groups. In addition, 92% of the Aphasia Center’s expenses were spent on direct program services—a record of which we are extremely proud.
