Weekly Newsbrief 5/9/2008

Weekly  Newsbrief

Announcement Title
Aphasia Center of Innovative Treatment Newsbrief                      05/09/08
Newsbrief Volume 1
 We resume our Aphasia Center of Innovative Treatment newsletters with a short form newsbrief.  While we may provide lengthy newsletters as we have in the past, we will also provide short, informative newbriefs we believe will be of interest to those on our newsletter list.
 As you all know, I have always championed the value of practicing Simply Smart Aphasia Therapy daily.  I have demonstrated time and again in my private practice that if an aphasic patient and their primary caregiver, with my assistance, focus on reconnecting  the communications pathways used by the brain in normal communication, both verbal and written, they will be successful in reaching a level of New Normal Communication.  This takes a lot of time, effort, and focus – but it is doable and worth the work.  The Aphasia Center of Innovative Treatment and are outgrowths of my experience as a practicing CCC-SLP.  Daily, intensive doses of smart activities following the 3C guidelines [ see previous newsletter ] will make significant changes and growth in communication skills.
 There has been a lot of discussion about the value of intensive therapy for patients with aphasia.  Therefore, in conjunction with the work we do at the Aphasia Center of Innovative Treatment, I have decided to reconstitute the Pittsburgh Aphasia Treatment, Research, and Education Center (PATREC).  Established ten years ago by myself, Dr. Malcolm McNeil, and Dr. Patrick Doyle, PATREC has provided innovative, intensive treatment grounded in evidence-based practice to patients from 22 different states and Canada.  At our clinic in Pittsburgh, we will provide the following: 
  • intensive aphasia, apraxia and cognitve disorders treatment,
  • individual treatment activities incorporating modern technology,
  • a series of consumer-focused workshops entitled “Plateau Busting.”
On-site treatment for aphasia patients who have difficulty traveling is available on a limited basis.
