Research has shown that technology can be used to establish new connections in the brain, yet many individuals who have aphasia are never exposed to the many affordable resources that can expedite progress. The brain is capable of new learning, especially when properly stimulated. It is imperative that people with aphasia, their advocates and the professionals who help them be exposed to the many resources that can maximize recovery.
In this presentation, Joan Green, a speech-language pathologist with many years of experience helping people who have aphasia, will introduce you to a variety of technological solutions to help individuals with aphasia maximize their speaking, listening, reading, writing, and executive skills as well as their ability to participate in the community.
Joan Green M.A. CCC-SLP will discuss:
* multi-sensory drill and practice software to help reach goals faster
* programs to stimulate communication in many languages
* new devices to help people with aphasia communicate
* how to see people as you speak to them from a distance- for free
* programs which enable the computer to read text out loud as words are highlighted or typed
* software to help keep the brain sharp
* the use of the computer to stimulate socialization and improve community access
* free online interactive products, video email and assistive technology
