CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (Communication Sciences and Disorders Class, University of Virginia, Friday, November 9, 2018, 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM hosted by Professor Kazlin Mason, Ph.D., Clinical Instructor, Curry School of Education, UVA.)
I presented “Aphasia, Regaining your language from a stroke” to about 30 first and second year graduates students in Speech Language Pathology plus undergrad students and staff. They had questions about plasticity, William James (who coined the word), enriched environment and multiple independent threshold units (aka neurons) (plus Krispy Kreme doughnuts!).
We also discussed my voice recordings during the first stage of my recovery. Dr. Mason was interested in studying my voice recordings which might be the first time a set of contemporaneous recording was conducted for almost a year (November 2011 to September 2012) of a person with aphasia. Thank you UVA!
