Dr. Jessica Brown is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Speech, Language, & Hearing Sciences at the University of Arizona where she runs the Cognitive Communication Brain Lab. She completed her bachelor’s degree at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and both her M.S. and Ph.D. at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She currently serves on the Executive Board for the Brain Injury Alliance of Arizona and chairs national committees for both the American Speech Language Hearing Association and the Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences. She is also a member of the mild traumatic brain injury task force for the American Congress of Rehabilitative Medicine and serves in various capacities for other professional and service-based organizations. Her research, teaching, and clinical interests focus on developing ecologically-valid assessments; creating Return-to-Learn practices; evaluating augmentative supports and strategies; and examining visual and cognitive abilities to improve functional outcomes for individuals with traumatic brain injury, stroke, and brain tumors. Her research is currently funded through the National Institute of Health and internally through the University of Arizona. 

Brief Course Description:  During this course, we will cover relevant background information related to cognitive deficits following mild-moderate traumatic brain injury and the role of the SLP in care for these individuals. We will also discuss practical tips for maximizing assessment of cognitive deficits across a variety of settings and practice creating person-centered treatment plans that fully triangulate current best practices, clinical experience, and patient goals/needs. Case studies and hands-on learning opportunities will be incorporated throughout. 

Following completion of this presentation you will be able to:

• Discuss the role of the SLP in cognitive therapy

• Recognize primary cognitive deficits following mild-moderate TBI

Webinar - Memory, Attention, and Aphasia

Memory, Attention, and Aphasia: What to think about, how to measure it, and why it matters



JoAnn Silkes completed her B.A. in Speech and Hearing Sciences at Indiana University and her M.S. in Communicative Disorders at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. After a 10-year clinical career in medical speech-language pathology, she completed her Ph.D. at the University of Washington. She is now an Assistant Professor at San Diego State University, where she is the Dr. Sadanand Singh Endowed Professor in Speech and Language Sciences and the Director of the Cognition and Language in Aphasia Laboratory. She is currently the Chair of the Evidence-Based Clinical Research Committee of the Academy of Neurologic Communication Sciences and Disorders. Her research focuses on understanding how implicit language processing breaks down in aphasia and developing aphasia treatment methods based on that understanding.



Course Description:  Aphasia is typically defined as a language-specific disorder, but that doesn’t always seem consistent with the clinical cases seen by speech-language pathologists. Apparent memory and attention impairments may be noted by clients, families, and clinicians, and impairments in memory and attention can be fundamental to the presenting language impairment, as well. This session will present definitions and models of memory and attention, ideas for assessing these skills across the range of aphasia severity, and discussion of the possible impact of their impairment.

 

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

- Describe models of memory, attention, and aphasia and how they are thought to interact.

- Discuss methods of assessing linguistic and non-linguistic memory and attention across the range of aphasia severity.

- Discuss ways in which memory and attention impairments may impact a client's language recovery and implications for aphasia treatment.
