Upcoming Programs

Distinguished Speaker Series: Dr. Jytte Isaksen

“How can we make communication everyone’s business? Sharing experiences from implementing partner training in hospitals.”

Monday, May 23 | 1:00 PM ET | Members Only

Aphasia Access is thrilled to continue 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. Each is an intimate conversation that will start with their thoughts and observations on the day’s topics and turn into an open and free-flowing conversation.

Jytte Isaksen is an associate professor at the Department of Language and Communication, University of Southern Denmark in Odense, Denmark. She lectures in the speech-language pathology and audiology programs in evidence-based practice, research methodologies, neurogenic communication disorders and other clinical subjects. Jytte’s research is centrered around aphasia and interaction, e.g. communication partner training of health professionals, outcome evaluation of aphasia therapy, and involvement of people with aphasia in research. Jytte is a part of the international research group Collaboration of Aphasia Trialists, where she serves in the executive committee and as chair of the working group Societal Impact and Reintegration.

International Aphasia Rehabilitation Conference (IARC) 2022

June 22 – June 24
Philadelphia, PA | Hybrid

The International Aphasia Rehabilitation Conference (IARC) brings together a global community of clinicians, researchers, academicians, and students dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with aphasia and their families. International leaders in aphasia research and service delivery will be providing keynote events throughout the conference. The single-track format of IARC 2022 allows for a wide range of presentations and content, but still maintains the intimacy of a small-scale conference event. The difference this year is that we will be providing robust opportunities for synchronous, asynchronous, virtual, in-person, and hybrid interactions through the conference period for presenters and attendees alike.

Keep an eye out for more information.
