Increased use of Stroke Pathway programs in hospitals across the country is likely contributing to the decrease in death from stroke in the U.S.  Subsequently there is an increase in the number of people living with long term deficits, including aphasia.   This course probes the role of the speech-language pathologist as a member of the multidisciplinary Stroke Response Model.  Attendees of this course will learn how to efficiently provide assessment and intervention to acute stroke survivors in order to abate future disability of patients and augment opportunities for recovery.
