The Nordic Aphasia Conference has travelled via Oslo (2006), Copenhagen (2009), Helsinki (2011), Gothenburg (2013), Oslo (2015) and Copenhagen (2017). The last conference in Copenhagen was most wonderful as Copenhagen always is. Now it is time to plan a visit in Turku, Finland in 2019!
The conference is a forum for scientists and clinicians interested in people living with aphasia, aphasia as a language and communication disorder, and different approaches to aphasia treatment. Therefore, we are working to ensure that the audience will get both new insights into the current challenges in aphasia treatment and concrete advice how to apply the knowledge and materials into rehabilitation practice.
Organizing committee 2019:
Kati Renvall (chair), Minna Laakso, Marjaana Raukola-Lindblom, Ida Luotonen and Nana Lehtinen (University of Turku)
Pirkko Rautakoski and Matti Laine (Åbo Akademi University)
