The web app SimpTell aims to support speech and language therapists in teaching Dutch-speaking persons with chronic Broca’s aphasia to produce reduced utterances (i.e., ellipses) to compensate for their sentence production difficulties. For our study investigating the effectiveness of SimpTell we are currently recruiting Dutch-speaking persons with aphasia. Speech and language therapists who want to help identify and approach potential participants can log on to Afasienet.com for our call for participants. This site also contains information in an aphasia friendly format.
20 March 2020 I will be in Rotterdam for the Aphasia Clinics. I will participate in a panel discussion on the treatment of grammatical disorders in persons with aphasia. I will update this page to include more info later.
