Aphasia Recovery Connection, Inc. (ARC) is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3).  The majority of our members are stroke survivors with aphasia. There are approximately one million people with aphasia living in the U.S.

The ARC mission is to provide support services to improve the quality of life for people recovering from aphasia, and their families and friends. Guide to Living with Aphasia will help you and your family with tips and resources for optimal recovery. The proceeds will help ARC!

We deliver compassionate support -- both online and with events -- so people know they are not alone.

We will continue our events, presentations, and online, on Facebook, on YouTube, on Pinterest,  and on Twitter.

ARC won a Most Impactful Award from the National Stroke Association.
