*Registration payment includes Credit Cards and Interfund Transfers ONLY.

Target Audience

Speech language pathologists who work with stroke, traumatic brain injury, or progressive neurologic disease

Description

This workshop offers an orientation to current clinical guidelines for assessment, diagnosis and treatment of adults with acquired apraxia of speech after stroke, trauma and progressive disease. The theme throughout will be practical implementation and consequences for clinicians and clients alike. The course will focus on criteria and methods for assessment and differential diagnosis.

Participants will have opportunities to practice their perceptual skills through audio and video illustrations. Additionally, hands-on measurement techniques will be demonstrated, as these are essential for justifying diagnostic impressions and documenting severity.

Several opportunities will be provided to test measurement and observation protocols on speech samples from persons with aphasia with and without apraxia of speech.
