NZ Stroke & Aphasia Handbook

The NZ Stroke and Aphasia Handbook provides easy-to-understand information on all aspects of life following stroke and acquiring aphasia.

It is a useful tool to support people with stroke and aphasia in:

  • Asking questions,
  • Having discussions and conversations,
  • Making choices and decisions.

It contains New Zealand-specific information about healthcare, support services, and financial assistance.

It is an invaluable resource for those with a loved one with aphasia, and is part of the Friends joining pack. Copies are also available for $35.

The Handbook was created by Connect – The Communication Disability Network, a former UK charity which worked with and for people with aphasia. We have adapted it for people living in New Zealand.
