Celebrating 20 Years of the LPAA: A Panel Discussion with the Original Authors
Thursday, December 3rd | 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET

In 2000, a paper entitled, “Life Participation Approach to Aphasia (LPAA): A Statement of Values for the Future” was published. This paper was authored by seven aphasiology pioneers who named themselves the LPAA Project Group. Six of those original authors will join us for a panel discussion to reminisce about how the LPAA was defined and its core values were established as we celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the pivotal paper that continues to inform how we practice

Virtual Speaker Series (members only)
December 11th | Deb Meyerson & Steve Zuckerman
December 16th | Lucy Dipper

Aphasia Access is thrilled to be launching this series as its newest membership benefit. We have brought together an international collection of thought leaders in both aphasia research and aphasia care to create a line-up that could be the envy of any aphasia focused event the world over. What makes these events even more remarkable is that they are not a traditional lecture. They are each intimate conversation that will start with their thoughts on observations on the day’s topics and turn into an open and free-flowing conversation. To make the conversation that much more impactful for everyone in attendance, each speaker has agreed to do a second session on their given day if interest is strong. The 2020-21 Distinguished Speakers Series is your chance to connect, up close and personal, with speakers that you may have had to travel and pay a conference registration to see from afar. All it takes is a current Aphasia Access membership.
