Registration from 10am and Session commences at 10:30am
Venue - Nathan Campus - Griffith University
Speaker - Dr Adam Vogel PhD Associate Professor

Adam has been the FA Clinic speech pathologist for the past 11 years. He also runs the Centre for Neuroscience of Speech at The University of Melbourne where he and his team work to improve how we assess and treat speech and swallowing difficulties in progressive brain disorders like ataxia. The team have developed assessments that are used in clinical trials to measure important aspects, namely talking, eating and drinking. These tools help clinicians identify what needs to be treated and what is changing over time. Together with colleagues in Tubingen (Germany), Adam has developed a speech treatment program designed to be completed in the home over a month. Building on our understanding of how speech changes in ataxia, how the brain can re-learn skills and how we can improve our ability to monitor our own speech, pilot data from 20 participants suggests that the speech of people with ataxia may improve with intensive therapy. Funding is being sought to run a larger trial with outcomes to follow if successful. All are welcome, but an RSVP is required if you wish to attend, as soon as possible please, as numbers will determine the room we will be allocated. I will send further details of venue with confirmation of your attendance. Kind regards Lilliana
