The UAD and the Aphasia Rehabilitation and Bilingualism Research Labs were awarded a CurePSP Venture Grant to test the feasibility of several approaches for managing airway protective (swallowing/cough) and communication difficulties in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP). Participants will undergo reflex cough testing and a swallowing test, in addition to assessments of communication. Recruitment for this study will start later this Summer.
