|Speech Language Pathologists receive professional training in the use of techniques and strategies to improve communication for patients who present with a variety of aphasias and cognitive deficits after a Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA). These deficits consist of receptive and expressive aphasia, dysarthria, oral apraxia or verbal apraxia. Cognitive language deficits may present as well, after a single neurological episode. However they are more common after the patient has suffered several CVA's. Once called multi infarct dementia, now referred to as vascular dementia. SLP's typically use speech & language cognitive techniques based upon evidence based practices to improve the patient’s level of functioning. New developments in the field of neurobiology suggest that a synergistic approach involving a variety of complimentary interventions may be the most effective overall approach to addressing cognitive dysfunctions. This paper will discuss the potential benefits of adding other components to the traditional speech-language cognitive therapy. The effects and advantages of a synergistic approach involving enhanced nutrition, physical activity, meditation and music on the brain and the use of brain stimulation exercises and computer games will be explained and discussed. The audience will complete the course with a better understanding of other variables and protocols that can have a positive and possibly greater and more enduring effect on brain rehabilitation when paired with speech and language interventions.|
