Be the Change: A Call for SLP Innovation in TBI Practice (WEB19740)

Presenter(s): Lyn Turkstra, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

SLP roles, practices, and opportunities when working with children and adults with TBI have transformed over the past two decades. Much of the change has been driven by external forces, including insurance, science, regulations, and more. This session empowers SLPs to drive TBI practice advances in 2020 and beyond, focusing on three key areas: (1) re-imagining intervention for patients with cognitive impairments in acute care and inpatient rehabilitation, (2) defining what we do and how it helps across the recovery continuum, and (3) characterizing “functional” in terms of what it means for people with communication disorders after TBI.

This course is a recorded session from the 2020 online conference “Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Individuals With Traumatic Brain Injuries.”
