Sam HarveyMSpPath

I'm a speech pathologist and PhD candidate within the Centre of Research Excellence in Aphasia Recovery and Rehabilitation studying the effect of dose of language therapy on recovery of language skills in people with aphasia.

My research interests stem from working with people with acquired communication difficulties and their families along the continuum of care. I'm particularly interested in treatment effectiveness, predicting recovery of language function after stroke, the neurological basis of speech and language, assistive technologies, and translational research.

I'm passionate about building advocacy and community support for people living with aphasia. I'm a committee member for Aphasia Victoria, a consumer advisory group for people with aphasia and I co-facilitate a community aphasia group.

This site provides free access to my published research, conference papers, and videos.
