Course Webinar: Incorporating Principles of Neuroplasticity into Aphasia Treatment Design

Course description: The brain has an amazing ability to adapt after injury. This course will review principles of neuroplasticity and their application to aphasia intervention. This discussion will be placed in the larger context of best practices in aphasia management with consideration for how speech-language pathologists can facilitate improved communication and life participation for adults with aphasia.

Presented by Emily J. Braun, M.S., CCC-SLP

Originally presented: Monday, February 22, 2021

Emily J. Braun is a doctoral student in the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at Boston University. Emily completed her undergraduate degree in Linguistics and master’s in Speech, Language, and Learning at Northwestern University. Prior to beginning her doctoral studies, she worked in acute rehabilitation and as a research speech-language pathologist. Her research aims to evaluate neural correlates of aphasia and aphasia recovery and to advance the evidence base for theoretically-motivated aphasia interventions. The ultimate goal of her research is to provide resources to clinicians to facilitate improved communication outcomes and life participation for people with aphasia.
