Tiffany Vassalo is a licensed speech-language pathologist who is passionate about helping adults make progress in their communicative goals. She is licensed to treat clients virtually in California and Washington. She has experience working with adults in both clinic and hospital settings, where she has treated a wide range of diagnoses, including aphasia after a stroke, dementia, and voice disorders secondary to Parkinson’s Disease.
Tiffany’s grandma had aphasia when she was younger, and she has first-hand experience on the challenges families face when confronting this disorder. She looks forward to helping families communicate better to improve the overall quality of life of the individual with aphasia and their caregivers.
The Aphasia Center of California provides high quality services that enhance communication skills, quality of life, and overall well-being for those affected by aphasia.
The Aphasia Center of California opened its doors in 1996, and was the first independent nonprofit organization in the nation dedicated to providing direct services to persons with aphasia. Today, our cutting-edge treatment programs offer a “lifeline” for participating individuals, their families, and caregivers—creating a community of people that support and understand one another—while providing stories of hope and success.
The purpose of Aphasia Nation is to educate the wider public about aphasia and particularly the healthcare and hospital communities. About 25-40% of people with stroke acquire aphasia yet few in the public are aware about aphasia and the link to stroke.
Beyond aphasia awareness, educating the public about neuroplasticity, the foundation of all learning, is the next step. Stroke survivors and people with aphasia have learned about plasticity the hard way. The rest of the population need to learn about it too. Learning a new skill, mastering algebra or relearning one’s language after a stroke all possess the same experience-dependentneuroplasticity.
People with aphasia (PWA) are taking the lead! Why not? No one can do what millions of PWAs have done! We have learned that an injured brain is still powerful enough to rewire our brain and regain our language, severity notwithstanding. Please join us!
