It's okay. I speak aphasic.

The Drake Center in Cincinnati Ohio is having a training session for first responders on how to communicate with folks with expressive aphasia. Please click on the flyer, below.

Note that the address of the Drake center is:

151 W. Galbraith Rd.

Cincinnati, OH 45215

Please e-mail me if you have any questions...
