About Aphasia United
Aphasia United is a world-leading international organisation that is driving change by uniting the global aphasia community. We are doing this through partnerships with national and international researchers, clinicians and consumers with a shared vision.
Aphasia United grew from the lack of integrated international strategy for the advancement of aphasia science and services. We are an umbrella organisation that represents the collective voices of existing aphasia organisations throughout the world.
Aphasia united aims to:
- increase the visibility of people living with aphasia and the clinicians and researchers who support them
- represent the aphasia community globally
- create formal global networks that connect people living with aphasia
- promote a global research agenda
- encourage best practice.
