— DANVILLE – Volunteers are needed at Danville’s Central Pennsylvania Aphasia Center.
The volunteers will work side by side with therapists and center members to help with speech and language rehabilitation programs.
Tara Michaels, business manager for the non-profit Aphasia Center, said it would be a great opportunity for college students entering fields such as speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, linguistics or looking for experience with the geriatric population.
Aphasia is a disorder which prevents a person from being able to properly associate words with meanings and is commonly caused by a stroke.
The Center, located at 1 Maria Hall Drive in Danville, is open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30-2pm. More information can be found by visiting www.AphasiaCenterPA.org or by calling 570-275-1175.
