The mission of the NSAA is to:

  • To increase public awareness of adult aphasia and other language disorders affecting people after stroke and other brain injuries.
  • To support and/or provide community programs for people with aphasia and/or language disorders: communication groups, and relearning for speech, writing and reading.
  • To provide information about resources to recover lost skills to the extent possible, to compensate for skills that will not be recovered and to minimize the psychosocial impact of the language impairment.

  • Acts as an independent source of information for people with aphasia, families and/or caregivers, healthcare professionals, and the greater public.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying.
