8:00 am Aphasia Treatment Across The Modalities

Aphasia is a multimodality language problem. As such, speech-language pathologists require an arsenal of treatments focusing on the modalities of oral expression, auditory comprehension, reading comprehension, and written expression. This course provides examples of aphasia treatments addressing each modality. The theoretical background, procedures, and current evidence supporting these treatments are emphasized. Discussion will focus on issues affecting their practical implementation, treatment intensity, and alternative methods of service delivery, including groups.

For more information or to register, please see the brochure.

FALL CONFERENCE OCTOBER 20-22, 2017 – MOUNT SAINT VINCENT UNIVERSITY
MENTAL HEALTH IN THE EARLY YEARS

The Nova Scotia Child Care Association is pleased to host our fifth annual fall conference: Mental Health in the Early Years: Social Emotional Wellness from the Start. We hope to provide practical knowledge and tools through a variety of exciting professional development opportunities aimed to support those who work with our most vulnerable population, children under the age of six and their families. Keynote speakers are Dr. Nancy Carlsson-Paige, a former teacher and educator, Dr. Kristen McLeod a registered clinical psychologist who has worked at the IWK as well as a special pre-conference seminar with clinical psychologist Dr. Dan Hughes.
It is our hope that the conference will provide practical information for professionals to use in their daily interactions with young children, while stimulating the mind and recognizing the important work we do each day. This conference is intended to strengthen ties, and expand collaborations between professionals who work with children in the early years of life, particularly those who require additional support.
