Innovative Interventions for Aphasia - Free Live and Recorded Webinar
Date:6/11/2009

Learn about low cost cutting-edge technologies that can be used to maximize progress and enhance rehabilitation efforts to help people who have had strokes, head injuries and other causes of aphasia re-engage in everyday life

POTOMAC, Md., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Join an award winning speech-language pathologist who has many years of experience using technology to help people with aphasia.

Research has shown that technology can be used to establish new connections in the brain, yet many individuals who have aphasia are never exposed to the many affordable resources that can expedite progress. The brain is capable of new learning, especially when properly stimulated. It is imperative that people with aphasia, their advocates and the professionals who help them be exposed to the many resources that can maximize recovery.

Explore how you can help a family member or client who has difficulty with communication.

View affordable and free state-of-the-art technologies in action during this one hour free webinar on June 26th at 12:30 EDT that you can view in the comfort of your own home or office.

Sign up by June 23rd www.ittsguides.com/store to view it live on June 26th or watch the recorded version until July 10th, 2009.
