The University of British Columbia, School of Audiology and Speech Sciences, in collaboration with March of Dimes Canada is hosting the 19th International Aphasia Rehabilitation Conference (IARC) on the campus of UBC from Thursday to Saturday, June 18-20, 2020.
The IARC conference is held in a different country every two years (the United Kingdom and Portugal most recently) and attracts 200+ international delegates (drawn largely from Canada, US, Australia and the UK, as well as mainland Europe). The conference attracts World leading academic and clinical researchers, practicing clinicians and involves a contribution from people living with aphasia themselves.
Unique to IARC 2020 is a one-day workshop for people living with aphasia and their caregivers that will follow the formal conference on Sunday, June 21, 2020 at Creekside Community Recreation Centre. At this workshop, IARC’s keynote speakers will join people living with aphasia and their caregivers to present aphasia-friendly presentations on living with aphasia.
