Resources

Whether you're living with aphasia, or are a carer or a loved one of a person living with aphasia, there are a number of resources and organisations that can provide you with additional information and support.

Healthcare Communication Support Resources - including COVID-19

COVID-19 Resources for health professionals to assist you in working with people with aphasia, please click here to download a PDF or  Excel file Current as at 3rd April 2020 (Due to high demand, occasionally the links will time out, if it does not work the first time, please try again)

This is a repository developed by the Aphasia CRE  for healthcare professionals working with people with aphasia. It provides resources that can be used to support conversations with people with aphasia or given to people with aphasia or family members to support them during this time. The aim of the repository is to disseminate resources widely and to reduce production time and resource duplication.

  • Resources have been collected from  aphasia professionals internationally, government sources, and international health sites and we would like to thank all involved for their contributions;
  • We will keep updating and adding to this repository daily over the next few months;
  • Questions should be directed to the source of the link listed;
  • If you have additional unique resources to add, please email C.Shiggins@LaTrobe.edu.au with original source information and links or PDF’s;
  • This repository includes resources in both English and  for other languages.
