Among the best parts of November is the Aphasia Access breakfast that takes place early morning on the first day of ASHA. And even though we couldn’t all be together in person, Aphasia Access still came together for the annual breakfast, which happened virtually on November 16, 2020.
This was a great chance to catch up with colleagues and friends, and a great way to learn more about implementing the Life Participation Approach to Aphasia. We were thrilled to have Drs. Audrey Holland and Roberta Elman as keynote presenters at the Breakfast. Drs. Holland and Elman are the editors of the text “Neurogenic Communication Disorders and the Life Participation Approach: The Social Imperative in Supporting Individuals and Families.”
In addition to their presentation, there were small-table breakout sessions that provided a chance to discuss and collaborate on ways to incorporate the LPAA into your own practice and setting. Chapter authors from the Holland & Elman text were present in the breakout rooms as well.
