The symposium contains the following two workshops:

The role of impairment based therapy in rehabilitation by Dr. Erin Godecke

This workshop aims to encourage speech pathologists and speech pathology students to engage in evidenced based very early aphasia therapy for people with aphasia. It will provide a brief overview of mechanisms of recovery following brain injury and will disentangle the concepts of restitution, substitution and compensation as they relate to aphasia therapy and recovery in your caseload.

Constraint and multimodal approaches to aphasia rehabilitation v. prof. Miranda Rose

This workshop will focus on results and experiences from the ongoing COMPARE trial investigating and comparing the two different multi-modal therapies for people with chronic aphasia multi-modal aphasia therapy (M-MAT) and constraint induced aphasia therapy (CIAT) with usual care. The workshop will draw on Miranda’s more than 20 years of work and research in gestures and other multi-modal approaches.
