The presentation will cover the nature and treatment of primary progressive aphasia (PPA), a degenerative neurological condition that causes a gradual decline in speech and language. This session will describe the three clinical variants of PPA with case examples as well as treatment approaches for each of the variants.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand how PPA is diagnosed and how it differs from other forms of aphasia and dementia.
  • Understand the neural and pathological bases of PPA.
  • Understand how PPA provides a unique window into brain-behavior relations for speech and language.
  • Identify core and associated diagnostic features of each of the variants of PPA.
  • Describe tailored treatment approaches appropriate for each of the variants of PPA.

This webcast is eligible for 4 SAC CEEs (Category A).

This session is rated "Intermediate" which assumes general familiarity with the literature and professional practice within the areas covered.
