Aphasia is a disorder caused by stroke or other brain injury that makes speech or language difficult. People with aphasia often avoid speaking, because they dislike being judged or misunderstood. 

Chicago Aphasia Network (CAN) is a registered non-profit that provides social support services and education to people with aphasia and their families. Members are encouraged to take an active role in making the organization their own. Join us to connect with other individuals with aphasia, their families, and resources in the Chicago community!
