The Asia-Pacific Stroke Conference 2022 (APSC 2022) is right around the corner. We are very excited and looking forward to the opportunities for holding an innovative hybrid conference. Here we have gathered some of the key information of the conference which you may find useful.
Neural Underpinnings of Early Speech Perception and Emergent Literacy
Dr. Chia-Ying Lee's research concerns the neurobiology of Chinese language processing by using the advanced neuroimaging techniques, such as ERPs, MEG, and fMRI. The ongoing research projects include cognitive and neural underpinnings of Chinese reading, the development of speech perception in early childhood and its relation to typical and atypical literacy development, and the reading comprehension in aphasic and aging brain. Her research team also collaborates with researchers in computer science to develop the computer-assist Chinese learning program for dyslexic children. Dr. Lee’s research has appeared in a broad array of scholarly journals such as Brain and Language, Neuroimage, Journal of Neurolinguistics, Neuropsychologia, among other publications. Her contribution has been recognized with several awards, including the Outstanding Research Award and the Excellent Scholar Project Award from the Ministry of Science and Technology in Taiwan, and the Research Award for Junior Research investigators from Academia Sinica.
Innovations in Supporting Communication: Opportunities and Challenges for People with Complex Communication Needs
Martine Smith, PhD is an Associate Professor of Speech Language Pathology at the University of Dublin, Trinity College, Ireland. She started her career as a speech language therapist working with children and adults with severe physical impairments, at a stage when AAC was emerging as a field of practice in the 1980s. Since then, she has been closely involved in the development of AAC as a field of practice and research, serving on the Executive Committee of the International Society for AAC (ISAAC) from 2000-2006 and as President of ISAAC from 2004-2006. She was co-chair of the Biennial Conference of ISAAC in 1998 in Dublin and is currently Editor of the AAC journal. Her research has focused on language and literacy development in children and adults who use aided communication and on the perspectives of adults who use AAC on the role of aided communication in interactions. She has published widely in peer-reviewed journals, authored Literacy and Augmentative and Alternative Communication, and co-edited the text The Silent Partner? Language, Interaction and Aided Communication.
