Aiming for Generalization: Using Evidence Based Practices to Maximize the Effects of Aphasia Treatment
This is an online course offering with no required start or end date. The course can be accessed at any time, and does not have to be completed in one sitting.
This course highlights the importance of planning aphasia therapy to maximize potential for generalization (improved beyond what is trained) in persons with aphasia. Multiple aphasia therapy protocols are discussed with respect to how to choose stimuli and/or manipulate treatment in order to examine, and potentially achieve, generalization in persons with aphasia.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Define different types of generalization and different ways in which it can be achieved and measures.
- Choose treatment stimuli/materials that could be used to increase and examine potential generalization in persons with aphasia.
- Describe and implement multiple aphasia treatment protocols targeting single words, sentences and discourse.
