Two graduating Master’s students in Speech-Language Pathology from the School of Rehabilitation Sciences, Caroline Auclair and Marie-Ange Lataille, were awarded the Tavistock Trust for Aphasia Student Prize.

This prize, originating in the UK, was established by the late Robin Tavistock (14th Duke of Bedford) with the goal of promoting awareness of aphasia among future speech-language pathologists.

Aphasia is a difficulty in producing and/or understanding language and is of significant concern to the well-being of individuals, with over 100,000 Canadians presently living with the disorder.

Caroline and Marie-Ange were awarded this prize in recognition of the excellent research they conducted with individuals from the Aphasia Centre of Ottawa entitled, “Using photovoice to document the experiences of individuals with aphasia – a pilot project”, the results of which will be presented at the annual meeting of the Academy of Aphasia, Montreal, October 2018.
