NSSLHA Meeting Notes October 2013

We had a fantastic turnout at our first meeting of 2013! 

We asked-- the always popular-- Dr. Michael Biel CScD, CCC-SLP to repeat his highly requested 2011 presentation: Intensive Aphasia Treatment: Case of Non-Lexical Recurrent Utterances 

For notes on this presentation please see our May 10, 2011. In case you missed the event and would like a link to the audio recording, please email us at

Here are some highlights from this week's meeting:
