The National Aphasia association remains the only unified voice for those with aphasia, serving to educate and support people across the country and even overseas. While it delivers no direct therapy service, it helps people learn about what services are available to assist them in recovery and adjustment to life with persisting communication challenges.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending and participating in their regional and national conferences, and in seeing how networking can assist people with aphasia to live better.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase its visibility and prominence nationally.

This organization was formed just 2 decades ago, but due to its unique Mission (advocacy for individuals with aphasia and their caregivers) the association has steadily expanded its outreach and influence across the country. On a small budget and with a small but might staff, the NAA reaches out both to professionals with interests in aphasia (speech-language pathologists, neurologists, psychologists, social workers, etc) and individuals with aphasia across the country. The NAA holds semi annual regional and national "Speaking Out!" conferences, publishes a quarterly newsletter, maintains an "aphasia-friendly" website, distributes an excellent Aphasia Handbook, and provides support for community groups across the country.

Increase the annual budget to allow the NAA to increase its outreach to greater numbers of individuals across the country and to support marketing to the general public to increase awareness of the disorder "aphasia" and the social and economic impact of that disorder, and to promote "aphasia friendly" communication environments across the country.

The National Aphasia Association is a direct link to communication advocacy. I volunteer for this association because it has all the right resources at all the right times. The web resources are fantastic. When people lose their communication, the NAA and it's many volunteers are the key to unlocking doors to independence in meeting necessary and social needs and helping those individuals maintain dignity.

The Great!
