Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

ICAPs have been shown to increase quality of life for persons with aphasia. Twenty-two OT students have co-led a six-week ICAP alongside communication science and disorders students at a graduate school. Qualitative data from student reflections show that OT students appraise ICAP participation as highly beneficial to prepare for clinical practice. Data highlight a desire for formal interdisciplinary collaboration within the ICAP.
