It's been a great resource to me and I appreciate the many volunteers who spend countless dedicated hours to keep the site updated and informative. Thanks NAA!! You do so much for so many!!

When a loved one loses language due to a stroke or head injury, it is quite frightening for family members to watch. Sometimes professionals have given the same information to patients so often that families are not given the time needed to process infromation before having to make decisions. So, families remain confused aboput what is happening to the family member with aphasia. The National Aphasia Association provides professionals and family members to assist families and patients who are trying to understand aphasia. There are representatives in every state in the United States, so finding people who can understand and relate to an individual's situation and resources is very possible. With the up-to-date resources contained at the NAA website as well as via NAA meetings across the country, volunteers can be sure to give families and patients current information in a compassionate, knowledgeable manner.

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

schedule regional and online meetings made available to volunteers in order to make the ability to access current information easier in this time when national travel is expensive for some volunteers.

The National Aphasia Association [NAA] has for many years steadfastly led the advocacy efforts for people with aphasia [People With Aphasia] and their caregivers. In addition, the NAA has provided information; workshops and materials to educate both PWA, their caregivers and the public that has been invaluable in advancing independence, recovery and reintegration. The NAA programs for educating public employees in more effective communication with PWA and for serving multicultural clients changed lives.

The Great!

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

my service as a state representative and on the multicultural task force. I have received numerous comments from PWA and their caregivers after their experiences with the NAA. I have also participated in the NAA regional outreach workshops [ SpeakOut] witnessing first hand the impact on PWA, caregivers and professionals.

This is the premier organization at the national level to help educate and support both the public and persons with aphasia. This organization has an amazing amount of information available to help those with aphasia. I had a client with aphasia who had gotten into legal trouble because the authorities would not read her Aphasia Card and didn't understand her condition. The NAA provided me with several articles and rulings about persons with aphasia and legal issues that I gave to my client. The NAA campaigns relentlessly to get the public to know more about aphasia. One of the best services they provide are hand-outs: stickers, aphasia cards, brochures, books, and other materials that educate about aphasia and provide a means for persons with aphasia to communicate in a pinch.

The Great!

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

Give them more resources and money to help them update their services as needed. They are trying to do a huge job with a limited staff and resources.

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.

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

increase its visibility and prominence nationally.
