Join Andrew Gomory, Chief Executive Officer of Lingraphica, as we discuss the highlights from ASHA 2012 in Atlanta.
This was the official launch of our new TalkPathSM Suite of Speech Therapy Apps for the iPad. These inventive apps offer therapy activities designed to help people with aphasia or apraxia re-acquire language lost due to stroke or other brain injury.
We'll recap the presentations by Dr. Richard Steele, Lingraphica's Chief Scientist. He conducted 2 presentations this year – a breakout session titled, "Designing Handheld Device Apps for Aphasia Therapy” and a poster board discussion titled, "Improvement Patterns in Severe Chronic Expressive Aphasia Following SGD Use".
Andrew will also go over some of the high-level issues and thinking he is seeing in the quest to help those with aphasia and apraxia.
Join Julie Kintz in welcoming Rebecca Kipping back to Quantum Leap! Rebbecca is a Speech Therapist who is well versed in the needs of those with brain injury. The topic for this show is the different aspects of aphasia. Rebecca is sure to educate us all on aphasia! Save the date, this will be an amazing show!
Lingraphica's TalkPath Suite of Speech Therapy Apps for the iPad are the culmination of 22+ years of dedicated research.
During those years, we've learned so much about how those with aphasia can improve their communication abilities so they can return to their communities.
In this quick and informative show you'll learn how unique the Lingraphica apps are. You'll learn how our unique approach to customer support makes a huge difference. And you'll learn how a different kind of company is making a lot of noise in the aphasia therapy market.
Speech-language pathologists will find this show very informative.
June is Aphasia Awareness Month
Aphasia is an acquired communication disorder that impairs the ability to speak and understand others, and often includes difficulty reading and writing, but does not affect intelligence. According to the National Aphasia Association, aphasia affects about one million Americans, both young and old, and is more common than Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy, yet, most people have never heard of it. Improvement in language is a slow process that usually involves both helping the individual and family understand the nature of aphasia.
Research advances are helping us to understand the role of neuroplasticity , the ability of the brain to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life, and are leading to improved medical and therapeutic treatments.
Please join my guests: Ellayne S. Ganzfried, M.S., CCC-SLP, a speech-language pathologist and the Executive Director of the National Aphasia Association, and Swathi Kiran, PhD,CCC-SLP, a professor at Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at Boston University, Research Director at the Aphasia resource Center, and a World-Renowned Expert in Rehabilitation After Stroke.
The National Aphasia Association (NAA) is a nonprofit organization that promotes public education, research, rehabilitation and support services to assist people with aphasia and their families.
Nathan Cortez, JD co-wrote an article on FDA regulation of mobile apps published in the July 24, 2014 issue of NEJM. Luckily, we snagged an opportunity to interview him - you can listen here.
We covered a wide variety of topics including:
Why regulate mHealth anyway?
The new FDA guidance — what needs to be regulated and what does not?
How does the FDA handle at continual updates of mobile health products – so different from the pharmaceuticals that they regulate? How do they decide whether an update constitutes a major change, requiring re-review and one that is minor and does not?
What is “substantially equivalence” and how is it being used in mHealth
How does the FDA handle mHealth products that provide consumer decision support (CDS)? What is the difference between low risk and high risk CDS?
Does the FDA have the right people/processes in place to provide oversight of mHealth?
Professor Cortez teaches and writes in the areas of health law, administrative law, and FDA law. His research focuses on emerging markets in health care and biotechnology. Prof. Cortez has become one of the world’s leading legal scholars on medical tourism, patient mobility, and cross-border health insurance, and has published several articles and book chapters on the legal and ethical implications of these phenomena. His research also addresses mobile health technologies, how to regulate innovations that disrupt static regulatory regimes, the First Amendment restraints on FDA regulation (including FDA's graphic tobacco warnings), immigration federalism, and alternative modes of regulation.
Listen in as leaders from Lingraphica explain their new campaign for Aphasia Awareness Month, throughout the month of June.
The website FacesOfAphasia.com is at the center of the campaign, which was created to spread awareness about aphasia, a communication disorder, caused by a stroke or other brain injury, that affects the way a person uses language.
Faces of Aphasia is a collection of stories about people affected by aphasia. If you have aphasia, care for someone with aphasia, or treat people with aphasia, please visit FacesOfAphasia.com to learn more and submit your story.
Everyone who posts a story receives a large, beautiful, and FREE poster of the aphasia journey.
