Reviews for National Aphasia Association, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

....accessing the publications and other materials the NAA has developed to assist individuals with aphasia and their families.

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

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.
