Boutique planned at aphasia center

The Adler Aphasia Center, a nonprofit in Maywood and West Orange that offers aphasia communication groups throughout New Jersey, will host its Something Special boutique and open house on Wednesday, November 8, from 4 to 8 p.m., at its flagship center, 60 West Hunter Ave. in Maywood.

The boutique offers handcrafted jewelry and gift items made by stroke survivors with aphasia. Gifts include jewelry, hostess sets, handmade greeting cards, and knitwear. Each gift-wrapped purchase includes a bio of the artists, which helps the center raise awareness about aphasia. Many of the artists will be on hand to greet attendees. All proceeds from Something Special sales support the center’s scholarship fund, so that no one with aphasia is turned away from the center’s programs and services because they cannot pay for them.

The Adler Aphasia Center is an innovative post-rehabilitative therapeutic program that addresses the long-term needs of stroke and brain injury survivors with aphasia and their families. Aphasia is a language disorder caused by stroke or other brain injury.

Light refreshments will be served. For information, email Amy May at, email, or call (201) 368-8585. Tours of the Adler Aphasia Center also will be available during this open house.
