Communication Sciences and Disorders
The Brain Injury Clinic (BIC), the source of participants for this corpus, is housed in the York Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute at Nazareth College in Rochester, NY. It is part of the Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) Department, within the School of Health and Human Services. The clinic has been operating since 1992, and has served hundreds of clients from the Greater Rochester community who have acquired brain injuries. Emphasizing a Life Participation Approach to Aphasia (LPAA), we engage clients in meaningful activities to reach their educational, vocational, and recreational potential. The BIC serves as a rich training site for graduate speech-language pathology students and as a research platform to study acquired cognitive-communication disorders.
