Unlocking Language with AAC: The Key to Success for People with Aphasia

Webinar Description

This talk will debunk common myths about the use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) in aphasia rehabilitation while providing strong theoretical constructs that promote successful use of AAC and avoiding learned non-use. Feasibility and video data demonstrating the use of AAC as a language recovery tool will be shared.

Meet the Presenter

Dr. Aimee Dietz is speech-language pathologist dedicated to improving outcomes for people with aphasia. She reports that, “We work to restore language and AAC is often provided only when the person plateaus—leaving them to feel as if therapists have given up and that recovery is over.” Dr. Dietz’s research focuses on using AAC as a language recovery tool and identifying associated neurobiomarkers.
