Primary Progressive Aphasia is a language disorder that occurs when the language areas of the brain deteriorate due to a number of different neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration, Alzheimer’s Disease). Over time there is gradual loss of language abilities (speaking, understanding spoken language, reading, writing), but other mental abilities may be relatively unaffected for many years. This talk will review language and communication interventions that have been used in this population, and discuss additional services to support quality of life that should be considered and researched. | Center for Advanced Studies: 17.01.2013 | Speaker: Dr. Karen Croot | Moderation: Prof. Dr. Adrian Danek
