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 you can choose to purchase a copy when you join as a Friend of AphasiaNZ. Copies are also available to purchase separately for $40 each.

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

Version 5 of the Handbook, printed in June 2021, is now available!
