    Advances in Speech Therapy for Aphasia

    in Health

    Join Dr. Richard Steele, Lingraphica's Chief Scientist, as we discuss new research in the field of speech therapy. Today's topic - how people who suffer from aphasia after having a stroke can improve language performance and communication skills years after the stroke.
    Dr. Steele conducted similar research years ago in the development of Lingraphica's speech-generating devices.
    Questions we'll ask Dr. Steele -
    Why is research such an important part of trying to assist people with aphasia? How is research — by Lingraphica and others — used as the foundation for each speech-generating device developed by Lingraphica? What particular aspects of research are implemented in Lingraphica's TalkPathSM Suite of Speech Therapy Apps for the iPad?
