We are excited to announce our upcoming conference CI2021: Cochlear Implants in Children and Adults to be held April 28-May 1, 2021 in Dallas, TX.
Our conference will include student and resident opportunities. We will be offering a scholarship to the conference and holding a poster competition within the conference.
We would particularly like to reach students who are under-represented in science. Please let me know if there is someone else in your institution that should be included in the forthcoming information sharing.
Please also post the information on student bulletin boards and communications widely.
WHAT: A panel of five to six current UW graduate fellows describe their experiences and offer tips on applying for fellowships as international students. To maximize the benefit you receive from this panel, we recommend reading about the fellowship(s) you want to pursue before you attend the panel session.

In recent years, there has been a proliferation of research targeting various aspects of aphasia treatment. These range from studies addressing the development, theoretical underpinnings and efficacy of specific treatments to more general issues such as intensity and dose that impact learning and outcomes, regardless of the treatment being administered.
This workshop describes the procedures for administering several of the newest aphasia treatment techniques, emphasizing their theoretical background and current evidence supporting their efficacy. Treatments that target impairment and activity-participation levels will be included. Practical issues such as dosage and service delivery models that improve access to and outcomes from treatment will be discussed.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
Describe components related to “dose” of aphasia therapy.
List procedures for administering at least four evidence-based aphasia treatments.
Differentiate impairment and activity/participation level treatments.
Explain the importance of considering social/life participation approaches in the treatment of aphasia.
This course is designed for practicing speech-language pathologists who have an intermediate to advanced level of experience with persons with apraxia of speech and aphasia.
