Purdue Aphasia Bootcamp

Offered for the first time in May 2017, persons with aphasia participated in an intensive two-week therapy program. Each person with aphasia worked one-on-one with a Graduate Student Clinician, participated in group therapy, and had the opportunity to socialize during a short break. Participants completed speech and language evaluations at the beginning and end of the program.
