Event Details

Course Abstract:  In recent years, there has been a proliferation of research targeting various aspects of aphasia treatment. These range from studies addressing the development, theoretical underpinnings and efficacy of specific treatments to more general issues such as intensity and dose that impact learning and outcomes, regardless of the treatment being administered. This workshop describes the procedures for administering several of the newest aphasia treatment techniques, emphasizing their theoretical background and current evidence supporting their efficacy. Practical issues such as dosage and service delivery models that improve access to and outcomes from treatment are discussed.

 

Learner Outcomes: At the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to

  • Describe components related to “dose” of aphasia therapy
  • List procedures for administering at least three aphasia treatments: Constraint-Induced Aphasia Treatment (CILT), Oral Reading for Language in Aphasia (ORLA), and Scripting
  • Differentiate outcomes relevant to the impairment and the activity/participation level
  • Explain the importance of considering social / life participation approaches in the treatment of aphasia
