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.
