For Professionals

For Professionals:

Marilyn Certner Smith, co-founder of Speaking of Aphasia and Shirley have developed techniques for stimulating language in people with aphasia. They have shared these techniques with other speech-language pathologists at state and national conventions in five states, as well as various hospitals in the greater NY/NJ area. They revised a therapy workbook which enjoyed considerable popularity with therapists: Thematic Language Stimulation. TLS is now available for purchase on the Products page of this website.

Marilyn and Shirley have also partnered in writing articles and chapters, and as invited speakers and presenters for both full day courses and specialized lectures on aphasia. Please visit the scrapbook page for more information about those courses. If you would like to host a presentation, let us know by filling out the form below.
