Canadian Stroke Best Practice Guidelines recommend that all health care providers working with persons with stroke across the continuum of care should be trained about aphasia, including the recognition of the impact of aphasia and methods to support communication. The primary purpose of this 3.5 hour pre-conference* professional education session is to provide innovative communication solutions to health care providers to increase communicative access for persons with stroke and others who ‘know more than they can say’. This workshop will be taught by a team of Speech Language Pathologists from the Aphasia Institute .
