Aphasia & Therapy

German version

Aphasia & Therapy at the Brain Language Laboratory

If you or one of your relatives suffer from neurological language disorder, please note that we are NOT a clinical institution and cannot offer advice or speech language therapy upon request. Please contact a speech therapist or neurologist for that.

However, we carry out therapy studies to test and improve the effectiveness of novel approaches to speech language therapy.

The Brain Language Labotratory (belonging to Freie Universität Berlin, Leader: Prof. Dr. Dr. Friedemann Pulvermüller) offers the possibility to take part in a intensive language therapy for 2 until 4 weeks for free to patients with a speech defect caused by a stroke. To make a participation possible participants need to meet some criteria (e.g. to be monolingual german).

At the moment a new project is in preperation. If you or someone you konw are interessted in taking part do not hesitate to ask for some information already.
