Talkback Groups & Special Groups

Aphasia SA has established several support and conversation groups across SA and ACT called Talkback Groups. Talkback Groups allow people with aphasia to meet, socialise together and practice communicating with others who understand. Talkback groups are facilitated by trained volunteers who can assist the conversation to flow with effective communication strategies.

They are also a good way for relatives and friends to meet.

People with little or no speech can enjoy Talkback Groups.

Talkback Groups are a low cost activity.

More information on each group is below.
