This course includes three recorded sessions from the 2018
online conference “Improving Functional Outcomes in Aphasia.” These sessions discuss
best practices for medical management, addressing cognitive impairments, and supporting
patient care for individuals with aphasia. The conference included a total of 15
sessions, giving a comprehensive view of the current landscape of aphasia intervention
as well as related subjects, including neuroplasticity, life participation,
assessment, and more. Sessions explored practical treatment strategies to meet
the needs of patients across the severity spectrum and in various treatment
settings, as well as the unique needs of a range of patient subgroups.
The three sessions in this course are:
- Neuroplasticity and Medical Management in Aphasia, by Peter Turkeltaub, MD,
PhD (64 minutes)
- Nonverbal Cognition in People With Aphasia: Implications for Treatment
Planning, by Marjorie L. Nicholas, PhD, CCC-SLP (67 minutes)
- Perspectives on Aphasia: Communication Breakdowns in Medical Settings, by David Dow, Carol Dow-Richards, and John Schultz, MD (30 minutes)
You will be able to:
- describe emerging methods aiming to enhance plasticity
and explain how to identify and incorporate appropriate research studies that
use these methods
- plan an assessment that includes nonverbal cognitive
areas as well as language
- list three ways patients can self-advocate
