After a loved one has a Stroke, do you notice…

You have difficulty understanding what your loved one is saying?

While aphasia may affect the way people speak and understand, it does not impact their intelligence. Your loved one may know more than they are able to say, but have difficulty communicating what they mean.

Does your loved one appear to have the words on “the tip of their tongue”?

They may be having a hard time finding the words to use or may be using sounds or words that aren’t quite right.

Does your loved one feel isolated from conversations?

They may feel that they can’t converse with people the way they used to or that conversations are happening around them without their involvement. This may make them feel frustrated or ignored.

Aphasia can build barriers between your loved one and they way they would naturally communicate.

Apheleia Speech’s Aphasia Program gives back the gift of communication to your loved one. The aim is to be able to better participate in conversations with family and friends in the long run.

How We Solve It

Apheleia Speech’s Aphasia Program gives back the gift of speech to your loved one. The aim is to be able to communicate again with their family and friends in the long-run.

The program includes “seeing” your therapist 3x per week — once live and twice via uploaded videos. Our virtual visits ensure that your therapy is conducted with flexibility and at your comfort at home.

Like everything we do, we also keep our pricing simple. No long-term contracts. No surprise fees or extras. Cancel any time.

How It Works

30-minute Live Video Call

Every week, your loved one will meet with our therapist face-to-face via Zoom. This time will be used for whatever is necessary depending on the progress or issues.

Exercises and Materials

We provide exercises and working materials that can help you practice your aphasia therapy consistently with your loved ones everyday at home.

2x Video Reviews Weekly

Twice per week you will record a short video of your speech exercise together and submit it to us. We’ll review it and provide any necessary feedback right away to make sure we’re going in the right direction.

Unlimited Messaging

Send your Speech Therapist a chat message any day, any time, and from anywhere. If you have questions, we want to make sure they get answered as quickly as possible.

Benefits of Apheleia

Personalized

You’ll receive tailored treatment based our an initial assessment, aligned with your loved one’s personal needs and goals.

More Affordable

At $125, your Speech Therapist “sees” you three times each week. Compare that to around $100 for just a single session with a traditional speech therapist.

Super Convenient

Access your therapy wherever you have a smartphone, tablet or computer with an internet connection. Our flexible scheduling also includes evenings and weekends. There’s no need to drive to appointments or wait in the clinic for sessions.

Simple

Everything we do has YOU and your loved one in mind. We’ve made speech therapy easier from start to finish, with easy-to-use apps, exercises and practice materials, and even to our fast online billing and payment system.
