CNWL’s Joanna Friedland (Senior Speech and Language Therapist at St Pancras Rehabilitation Unit) and Dr Arvind Chandratheva (Consultant Neurologist and Clinical Lead at St Pancras Rehabilitation Unit), have co-authored a research article alongside Clinical Psychologist, Catherine Doogan, from the Institute of Neurology at University College London.

The article examines whether high premorbid language function can influence functional recovery from aphasia, and draws on evidence from a case study reporting on the recovery of a 64-year-old male.

The research article was published in the journal Aphasiology, published by Taylor & Francis on Monday 20 September.

Carole Walters, Operational Manager and Therapy Lead said: “It speaks volumes for the great work done on the unit and the teamwork involved to produce such an article. We are inspired and delighted to see this research come from our Covid response. Thank you, Joanna and Arvind from all the Team at St Pancras Rehabilitation Unit.”
