This is an academic and clinical symposium for researchers and clinicians working in the field of cognitive-communication disorders incorporating all rehabilitation disciplines including Speech and Language Therapy, Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology. The primary focus of the symposium is on the assessment and management of cognitive-communication disorders for people with brain injury.

Abstracts are sought from established academics, new researchers and practising clinicians. We strongly encourage therapists to consider submission of assessments, therapy ideas and quality improvement projects completed as part of their clinical service. These may include evaluations of groups, single-case designs, case descriptions, or evidence of good practice.

Submissions in a wide range of topics are sought, including:

  • Terminology and diagnosis
  • Awareness, insight and readiness for treatment
  • Identity
  • Intervention
  • Outcome measurement
  • Family intervention
  • Wider public understanding
  • Advances in CCD
  • Technological applications and advances
