Aphasia Needs an International Icon to Help Raise Awareness

Aphasia international icon needed

The search for an iconic symbol for aphasia has begun!  
Aphasia United is launching an international competition to develop and adopt a symbol that can help raise awareness of aphasia. This is something that international surveys have identified as an impediment to improving services.
Aphasia United seeks to drive change through global strategic action. They work in partnership with aphasia organizations such as March of Dimes Canada to achieve change by:
  • Increasing the visibility of people living with aphasia and the clinicians and researchers who work to support them.
  • Representing the aphasia community globally.
  • Creating formal global networks that connect people living with aphasia, clinicians and researchers.
  • Setting a global research agenda.
  • Encouraging best standards of practice in aphasia care
The Aphasia Icon Competition is organized by Aphasia United, and you are invited to send your design to: AphasiaUnitedLogo@gmail.com

Closing date for submissions is August 31, 2014.  

Canadians with communication disabilities have the right to equal access to services in the same way as everyone else. Visit the Communication Access Now (CAN)​ website to learn about the communication access symbol and get information, videos and vocabulary resources.
