Our Association was formed to support people with aphasia ( ay - faze- yuh ).

Aphasia is a loss of language skills usually caused by stroke or other brain injury.

Aphasia can affect
- speaking 
- understanding the speech of others 
- reading 
- writing
- understanding numbers and money.

About 1,500 South Australians develop aphasia each year. Aphasia can be caused by a stroke or brain injury.  Many people, including service providers, have never heard of aphasia. The Talkback Committee aims to raise awareness and increase the services provided to people with aphasia.

Talkback Association for Aphasia has some exciting radio interviews planned this year. Our aim is to spread awareness of aphasia and to connect people to the Talkback Association for Aphasia.

We will be talking on 101.5FM Radio Adelaide on Thursday 14th June 2018 and Thursday 13th September 2018 at 2pm. We would love you to tune in!

We welcome ideas for topics to discuss during our interviews and we welcome Talkback members to participate

Please forward any ideas or interest to Elle on 0417 016 967 or elle.finos@gmail.com.
