OPTIMISING SPEECH ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT IN FRONTOTEMPORAL DEMENTIA
Grant number: 1135683 | Funding period: 2017 - 2021
Frontotemporal dementia has a devastating impact on our ability to speak and understand others. This proposal aims to improve our understanding of how to best assess, diagnose and treat these debilitating impairments. By bringing together an international consortium of clinics, these findings will lead to significant advances in our understanding of disease progression and patient care.
