This presentation is the first of four new offerings in our Fall/Winter Knowledge Exchange Speaker Series.
This webinar will present a program of research that describes what it means to live successfully with aphasia, what happens in the first crucial year post stroke to influence success, and what are the factors that determine whether a person is successful or not. The webinar will explain how these findings can be translated into clinical interventions that speech language pathologists can provide that maximize the person's success in living with aphasia.
