EventA Conversation about Aphasia
CityEvanston
Details
At 2:00pm on Wednesday, November 20, WBEZ 91.5 FM's  Afternoon Shift  program is holding a conversation about aphasia, a common  disorder that can affect a person's ability to talk, read, write, and understand spoken language. About one million Americans  &ndash   or 1 in 250 people  &ndash   live with aphasia, according to the National Aphasia Association, including 25-40% of stroke victims and others who experienced head trauma, brain tumors or other neurologic conditions.  Aphasia can affect children and adults.

 
Host Niala Boodhoo will explore research developments, everyday strategies, and the challenges of living with aphasia with Northwestern University research expert Cynthia Thompson, PhD, faculty member and clinical supervisor Belma Hadziselimovic, MS, CCC-SLP, and Carolyn Goffman, PhD, whose husband has had aphasia for over seven years. 
 

 
JOIN THE CONVERSATION!    WBEZ invites listeners to call the station  at 312-923-9239 during the program with their questions and experiences. Hearing the perspective of community members, speech-language pathologists, and other professionals  will add depth and understanding to the conversation.  Individuals  outside  of the station's FM range can hear the show by  streaming in via wbez.org and clicking on the 'Listen Live' button.
