UO's Sohlberg featured in journal news story on treating brain injuries

The leading news journal of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association asked in its May issue if people who have suffered serious brain injuries can be taught critical skills that allow them to resume their lives.

For the answer, the ASHA Leader turned to McKay Sohlberg, the UO's HEDCO Professor in Communication Disorders and Sciences and a fellow of the professional organization.

"My goal is to help improve their day-to-day functioning.”
