Presentation to SLPs at BCASLPA Conference

Here are some photos from our presentation to speech-language pathologists in Victoria at their annual provincial conference. We had a good time and hope it inspired our friends on Vancouver Island!

Our panel of presenters included Stu, student Reva-Marine, Skip, Jila, Barbara, and Jill

Skip, Barbara, and Jill talked about spreading aphasia awareness

Stu discussed our public speaking activities

Great Student Presentations

Ruth and Diana also did a great job with their presentations today.

Diana presented on the different kinds of aphasia, and on apraxia of speech.

Learning about different kinds of aphasia, and apraxia of speech

Ruth presented on how numbers can be affected in individuals with aphasia. She taught us that this could be for two different reasons.

  1. Because numbers are a part of language and aphasia affects language.
  2. Because aphasia affects general resources (e.g. attention, executive function) which are needed for numbers and language
