Australian Aphasia Association National Conference

Perth,  6th -7th November 2023

I was honoured to be a guest speaker at the National Australian Aphasia Association in Perth.  My presentation focused on Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) and highlighted the similarities and differences between PPA and aphasia that results from stroke.

The PPA Guide

At the end of the presentation, it was my great pleasure to join with Ms Natalie Ive, to launch The PPA Guide, a new resource for people living with primary progressive aphasia and their families. Natalie is a member of the Australian Aphasia Association (AAA) Executive Board and the Dementia Advisory Committee and is living with PPA. Her contribution to The Guide is invaluable. My other co authors are Associate Professor Jade Cartwight and Professor Deborah Hersh.
