Primary Progressive Aphasia
Research tests the extent to which AAC intervention is associated with changes in conversation for persons with primary progressive aphasia under controlled and natural conditions. We also describe the behavioral and socio-relational characteristics of caregiver/partners and participants who display improved conversational skills with AAC treatment. Persons with AD and matched normal adults are included in this study. Funded by NIDRR
