The New Zealand Stroke and Aphasia Handbook

The New Zealand Stroke and Aphasia handbook is specifically designed for people whose lives are directly affected by aphasia – the person who has suffered the brain injury or disease, their family members and whanau, their caregivers, and their friends.  This resource is free when becoming a 'Friend of AphasiaNZ.' There is a $35.00 fee for additional copies of the handbook.

Workshops and Aphasia Days

AphasiaNZ runs workshops and Aphasia Days throughout the country which serve as forums to raise awareness about aphasia and encourage people to discuss it publicly.  In addition, they are great opportunities for people with aphasia to get togethershare ideas, feelings and thoughts in a supportive environment.  The last biennal conference was held in Auckland on the 19th and 20th of November 2015. More information is available here.
