Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), in-person classes at the Stroke Comeback Center (in Vienna and Rockville) are suspended until further notice. However, our Virtual Programs are thriving! Check out our virtual programs under our "Programs" tab.


Welcome to the Stroke Comeback Center! 

The Stroke Comeback Center is a community of survivors of stroke and other brain trauma committed to living successful and productive lives. We are a non-profit organization that offers support along the slow road to better. Our members, our professionals, our volunteers, our coaches, and our families know that recovery continues forever. We are the only center of this kind in the Washington, DC area.

Our Center:

  • Provides programs and classes for survivors with aphasia and other communication difficulties using a social approach
  • Focuses on all aspects of recovery: speech, reading, writing and comprehension, cognition and fitness
  • Uses interactive technologies tailored to each of our members
  • Continues to provide affordable fees through donor-funded scholarships
  • Has received national recognition for our accomplishments and innovation
  • Believes that all survivors deserve the respect and the support needed to live successfully and participate fully in life

An initial Intake Meeting is required before joining our community. See the Programs Overview page of our website for details.

See the Center in action at a nationally aired segment: Stroke Comeback Center at PBS
