conduct 1-day workshops for friends and family members of persons with
aphasia, and anyone else who communicates frequently with persons with
aphasia. These workshops are run by Speech-Language Pathologists (Dr.
Yasmeen Faroqi-Shah & Ms. Kristin Slawson) with assistance from
graduate and undergraduate students at the Department of Hearing and
Speech Sciences. We
combine research evidence and clinical expertise in planning
these workshops. We are currently collecting outcomes data to measure
the effectiveness of these workshops.
