Neurogenic Communication Disorders

Neurogenic Disorders

At Miami University we are able to offer academic, clinical, and research opportunities for students who are interested in the areas of adult language, speech, and cognitive disorders. We have a two-course sequence (Aphasia and Neurogenic Cognitive Disorders) that provide theoretical, research, and clinical information regarding stroke, brain injury, dementia, and other etiologies resulting in neurogenic communication disorders. Our clinical programs at the MU Speech and Hearing Clinic allow students to apply classroom information and treat patients with acquired language and cognitive disorders. Furthermore, our students gain experiences working with patients in acute, subacute and postacute hospitals/rehabilitation settings as part of their extern training.
