The Aphasia Tones 10th Anniversary

The Aphasia Tones were developed in 2009 by Ellen Bernstein-Ellis, M.A.-CCC-SLP, as a way to offer therapeutic and social benefits of singing in a group to members of the Aphasia Treatment Program. Directed by talented SLHS students who implement aphasia friendly methods, the chorus sings popular music, presents concerts, and raises awareness of aphasia on campus and in the community.  

The Aphasia Tones are proud recipients of the 2015 National Stroke Association RAISE "Most Creative" Award https://www.stroke.org/stroke-resources/raise-awareness-of-stroke/previous-raise-awards/2015-raise-awards/   A Cal State East Bay news story about this award and the choir can be read at http://www.csueastbay.edu/news/2015/11/11022015a.html 

The Aphasia Tones were featured in 2016 as part of local NBC's Bay Area Proud series: https://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Finding-Their-Voice-Aphasia-Patients-At-CSU-East-Bay-Form-Singing-Group-366949861.html
