Communication Partner Training At the University of Maryland (CoPTUM)

The next workshop is on Saturday, October 28, 2017


We 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.

Upcoming workshop dates:
  • October 28, 2017
  • February 24, 2018
  • June 30, 2018
(These are typically held on the last Saturday in October, February and June)
