On October 24-25, 2014 the BC Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (BCASLPA) is holding their annual conference here in Vancouver.
The conference provides a venue for audiologists and speech-language pathologists to learn from leading practitioners and researchers in the field present on current topics of interest to members. This year the focus is Evidence Based Practice and includes the integration of expert opinion, scientific evidence / research and client / care giver perspectives.
We frequently represent clients who have sustained brain injuries that affect the ability to communicate. Our firm’s philosophy is to focus on client recovery as the first order of business. This includes making sure clients have appropriate care teams in place and taking the necessary steps to get clients access to the rehabilitation programs they need to achieve optimum recovery.
We have seen first hand the benefits of including trained audiologists and SLPs as part of a client’s rehabilitation program. As our way of giving back to a group of professionals that have provided invaluable support to our clients over the years Murphy Battista LLP is pleased to sponsor a presentation by Dr. Julie Wambaugh, Professor of Communication and Sci Disorders, University of Utah.
Dr. Wambaugh will be addressing “Evidence Based Practice and the Treatment of Acquired Apraxia of Speech during the Friday session (October 24).
