“Art is the highest form of play.”

- Leo Schulemowitz, stone sculptor

If you believe in play as an art form, if your

child’s artistic efforts at home make you

yearn for a place where your child’s imagination

can run free, and if you’d like to see

the emotional process that your child goes

through creating art, then these are the art

therapy classes for your child. These classes

are led by a trained and experienced Art

Adler Aphasia Center at JCC MetroWest

THE AdLER APHASiA CENTER AT JCC

mETRoWEST welcomes people of all ages

who have been diagnosed with aphasia.

Contact Wendy Greenspan, Program Director,

973-530-3981 (wgreenspan@adleraphasiacenter.org)

for more information and to set up a

tour.

AdLER APHASiA CENTER

A Place of Reconnection

of Rediscovery, of Recovery.

Welcome to the Adler Aphasia Center- a place

of hope. We are a resource for people with

aphasia, their caregivers, and the community.

Through our innovative group therapy led

by licensed speech-language pathologists,

we provide a stimulating environment to improve

communication and cognitive skills and

strengthen social connections to help you live

a fuller, richer life.

How do we help people with aphasia and their

caregivers?

• Through group activities, the arts, technology,

and fitness and caregiver support

groups, our programs help our members

and their families reconnect with life by:

• Improving communication skills

• Exercising cognitive skills

• Building self-esteem

• Making social connections

• Building strategies to help families meet

the challenges of aphasia

How is the Adler Aphasia Center structured?

• Members with aphasia participate in 3

groups a day

• Groups activities change by the semester,

based on member interests

• The program meets on a semester basis,

twice a week for 15 weeks (3 semesters a

year)

What is the cost to attend?

Cost is $750 a semester ($25 a day). This is

less than one-third of the Center’s actual cost

per member. Scholarships are available- no one

is turned away for their inability to pay.

What is a day like at the Adler Aphasia

Center?

9:30am – 10:00am

Enjoy a cup of coffee and a breakfast snack

with fellow aphasia members

10:00am – 11:00am

First group session meets

11:00am – 12:00pm

Second group session meets

12:00pm – 12:30pm

Lunch

12:30pm - 1:30pm

Final group session meets

Sample groups include:

brain fitness, computer labs working with

language based software, skill-building handwriting

and spelling, fitness, advocacy, aphasia

101, current events, cards and games, jewelry

and gift design.

Is long term rehabilitation possible?

The Adler Aphasia Center at JCC MetroWest’s

primary focus is on direct services for people

living with aphasia and their caregivers. At

the Center’s flagship campus in Maywood,

research is being conducted that demonstrates

that over a one-year period, our members with

aphasia experienced a significant increase in

functional language and perceived quality of

life due to their participation in Adler Aphasia

Center programs.

with cultural significance. Come see how our

relationship with gardens has evolved over the

centuries.

The Golden Girl

Few paintings have as rich a resonance as Gustav

Klimt’s masterwork portrait of Adele Bloch-

Bauer. Painted the same year as Picasso’s Les

Demoiselles d’Avignon, the portrait marked

Klimt’s efforts on the first truly “modern”

painting. War, confiscation, and restitution led

it to become a collector’s prize for over $100

million. Come hear the story of this amazing

woman and her portrait.

Mondays, October 22 & 29 • 10:30am

Join us as we enjoy two films that originated as

acclaimed thrillers (in date order):

Citizen Cohn

Roy Cohn (James Woods) was a brutal genius

attorney—and he knew it. He helped bring

the Rosenbergs to trial as spies. He then destroyed

lives as Senator Joe McCarthy’s (Joe

Don Baker) right-hand man during the 1950’s

witch hunt for Communists. Later, he stood

against the Kennedys, fighting their support

of civil rights while befriending FBI Director

J. Edgar Hoover and attempting to undermine

the leadership of Martin Luther King. To many,

Cohn was a national hero, to others, he was

national disgrace.
