The Center for Aphasia Research & Treatment was created in 2001 at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) to respond to the challenge of “living with aphasia.” Its mission is to promote the development and implementation of rehabilitation practices that enhance the communication skills of individuals with aphasia and facilitate their engagement in life activities.
