Talkback Groups In South Australia

Talkback Groups are groups for people with aphasia.
People with aphasia meet and socialise with each other.
People can practise their speech with others who understand how hard it is to communicate when you have aphasia.
They are also a good way for husbands, wives, family members and friends to meet.
They are run by a trained volunteers supported by a Speech Pathologist.
People with little or no speech can enjoy Talkback Groups.
Talkback Groups are a low cost activity.
