An Update on Evidence-Based Interventions for Acquired Language Disorders Across the Continuum of Care

La langue utilisée dans la description reflète la langue de la séance.

Following a brief overview of contemporary conceptualizations of aphasia and other acquired language disorders and their management in a variety of healthcare settings, this presentation will critically review recently developed interventions designed to: (a) directly remediate acquired language disorders, common, concomitant extra-linguistic issues, or both, and (b) via compensatory approaches (e.g., communication partner training), indirectly address acquired language disorders, related concomitant impairments, or both.

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will be able to describe recently developed therapy procedures designed to directly address and remediate the linguistic and related concomitant symptoms of adults with aphasia or other acquired language disorders.
  • Participants will be able to describe recently developed therapy procedures designed to compensate for or indirectly address the linguistic and related concomitant symptoms of adults with aphasia or other acquired language disorders.
