M.S. Communication Sciences & Disorders

» The Fourth International Cognitive-Communication Disorders Conference

January 11 – 13, 2024

Chapman University, Orange, CA, in the heart of "Old Towne of Orange"

Join us for the fourth ICCDC to present your latest research and hear what your colleagues are doing in the management of cognitive-communication disorders after brain injury. The emphasis of this conference is on the cognitive-communication and social communication disorders after traumatic brain injury, right hemisphere, long COVID and other acquired brain disorders.

ICCDC is a small venue where researchers and clinicians can learn through peer-reviewed presentations, panel presentations, and extensive discussion. Clinicians and researchers engage in discussions about how research can be translated into practice, including the opportunities and challenges, and how clinical experiences can inform research.

This will be a HYBRID conference with in-person and online presentations and discussion.  

Conference presenters are encouraged to submit a manuscript from their presentation for publication in the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology (AJSLP) as a special issue. See the publications from the January 2020 conference. These publications represent the research that was presented and the clinical discussions that occurred.

Keynote Speaker

Sheila MacDonald M.CI.Sc. SLP(C)
