Did you know that different neurological conditions like dementia, Parkinson's disease, and stroke can cause difficulty with communication (aphasia), and swallowing (dysphagia)?

This interactive workshop will address the following:
- Types of communication disorders with spotlight on aphasia
- Basic tips to improve communication with those who have communication disorders
- How to identify signs of swallowing difficulties
