Therapy Symposium 2014 - First call for Abstracts
The Therapy Symposium of the British Aphasiology Society will be held at Birmingham City University 4-5 September 2014.
This Symposium focusses on what we as therapists actually ‘do’ in treatment and offers clinicians an opportunity to hear about the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of therapy and to take part in lively discussions. We are keen for everyone to go away with concrete ideas they can use in their everyday practice. A broad theme for the symposium will be ‘Creative service delivery in challenging times’.
