AphasiaAccess, an organization that promotes communicative access and supports people with aphasia and their families in achieving their goals, needs a producer for its new podcast. Aphasia is a language disorder, often resulting from a stroke, that impacts a person's ability to speak, understand, read, and write. It affects around a million people in the U.S. See the request for proposals for podcast details and to learn more about AphasiaAccess.

Organizational Summary
AphasiaAccess is a nonprofit membership organization. Its mission is to “grow a network of healthcare, business, and community leaders to advance lifelong communication access for people with aphasia.” Members come from the majority of US states and Canadian provinces, along with 11 other countries. A key commonality is that AphasiaAccess members are supportive of the Life Participation Approach to Aphasia (LPAA). The LPAA is a consumer-driven service-delivery approach that supports individuals with aphasia and their families in achieving their immediate and longer term life goals.
The organization currently offers educational programming that includes a Biennial Leadership Summit, a library of training videos with archives of previously captured webinars and general resources (e.g. forms, protocols) to help professionals in healthcare (acute, rehabilitation, and community-based on-going programs), plus university professors teaching the next generation of speech-language pathologists.
