NAA EMERGENCY RESPONDER TRAINING

HELP US RAISE AWARENESS OF APHASIA IN YOUR COMMUNITY

In the spring of 2008 the National Aphasia Association (NAA), with the generous support of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and others, launched an exciting aphasia awareness training program aimed at first responders. 

Our goals:

  • Educate police, firefighters, and emergency medical technicians about aphasia
  • Train people to be able to communicate with persons who have aphasia in emergency situations
  • Deliver aphasia awareness training in all 50 states through our unique “train the trainer” model

Aphasia Sticker

The NAA has developed a variety of training materials that we are anxious to share. The hallmark of the training is the aphasia sticker that would allow emergency responders to recognize persons with aphasia. These training modules were created to be adapted to various audiences based on need and focus. Training can be conducted by any interested party including persons with aphasia, caregivers, students, SLPs, etc. 

Please join us in educating the public about aphasia!
