Traumatic Brain Injury ~ The Singapore Context

Speaker: Ms. Sajlia Binte Jalil

Hosted by Speech and Hearing Association Singapore  (SHAS)

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) commonly affects young people and can result in a lifelong disability. Singapore is unique compared to the commonly researched populations in Australia, UK and US – including our language background and healthcare system. In this talk, we will explore how bilingualism impacts TBI sequelae and discuss what we can learn from service delivery models in established TBI units in Australia. It will be a sharing and discussion session, so bring along your best thinking hats and come share your thoughts and experiences!

Outline of the talk:
– Brief overview of TBI

– Bilingualism and TBI: Assessment, management and sharing of PhD findings on code-switching behaviours in TBI

– The NSW BIRU experience and what we can learn from it

Please see below for more details and send all enquiries to Melissa from the SHAS Professional Development Team.
