Previous BAS Symposia

The 2014 Therapy Symposium of the British Aphasiology Society was held at Birmingham City University 4-5 September 2014.

This Symposium focussed on what we as therapists actually ‘do’ in treatment and offers clinicians an opportunity to hear about the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of therapy and to take part in lively discussions.  We are keen for everyone to go away with concrete ideas they can use in their everyday practice.  A broad theme for the symposium was Creative service delivery in challenging times’.
