Select Papers from the 42nd Clinical Aphasiology Conference
In this journal self-study, we’ll explore a variety of topics discussed at the 42nd Clinical Aphasiology Conference, including a wide range of issues surrounding the study and clinical management of persons with acquired neurologic communication disorders. This self-study both reflects the composition of the annual conference and embodies multiple perspectives about three disorders of central focus at the conference; namely, aphasia, apraxia of speech (AOS), right hemisphere brain damage, and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
You will be able to:
- discuss issues critical to assessment and rehabilitation
- compare the effectiveness of various approaches to treatment in aphasia
- discuss methods of analyzing narrative and conversational discourse
- describe the effect of gesture and multi-modality treatments in aphasia
- discuss how the treatments are shaping the future of rehabilitation for individuals with acquired neurologic communication disorders
