What is the Talkback Association for Aphasia?

The Talkback Association for Aphasia has been set up by, and for, people with Aphasia, their families and carers.

The Talkback Association for Aphasia (Talkback) is an incorporated body under South Australian legislation.

Talkback is a membership organisation. You can join Talkback for $20 each year.

At the AGM (usually held in September) the Chairperson provides a written Annual Report and the Treasurer presents the audited financial report.

The Annual Report presented at the 2016 AGM is here. (Pdf, 49Kb).

It aims to:

  • Provide information and support
  • Raise public and professional awareness of aphasia
  • Promote social opportunities and conversation through Talkback Groups
  • Help develop social and self-help groups and programs
  • Develop advocacy skills
  • Support people with aphasia to develop confidence in their communication, and take control over their own lives.
You can:
  • Contact us for information, advice and support
  • Join a Talkback Group in your area
  • Visit our lending library of resources
  • Come to training sessions and seminars

Why is the Talkback Association important?

  • Aphasia can be an on-going, chronic problem
  • People who have aphasia and their families often feel socially isolated and misunderstood by those around them
  • They have a need for information and support soon after the stroke or brain injury
  • They also need support after rehabilitation and speech therapy have finished
  • Information is needed for people with aphasia, their families, and for people in the community
  • We help develop social and self-help groups and programs
  • We promote advocacy and self- advocacy skills
  • Most people don't know about aphasia or how best to communicate with someone who has aphasia.

The Talkback Association:

  • provides support and information to people with aphasia, families and others
  • helps to overcome isolation and misunderstanding.
