Philadelphia Aphasia Community at Temple
The Philadelphia Aphasia Community at Temple (PACT) is a very supportive, engaging, comfortable, and social group at Temple for people who have aphasia. PACT provides us with information about how to participate in various group activities, which then carries over and impacts our daily living within our communities. We promote a safe and accepting environment for people with similar communication needs and styles. We participate in all different groups, including Active Living, spirituality, technology, PACT singers, CHAT (a conversational group), games, Art group, and “Finding the Words” (a book writing group), which are all incredibly fun and exciting. In PACT we have the freedom to choose the groups and activities that we participate in. We are here to encourage and motivate you!
