A collaboration of  Dr. Lisa D’Angelo and students in the Applied Communication Sciences Lab (ACSL) in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Sacramento State, the CogCommConnection is involved in three ongoing community-based and research projects:

            *A Combined Memory Therapy Approach for TBI: 60 students involved in an IRB approved research project serving clients with TBI in the community who are unable to get services after completion of rehabilitation/insurance denial. Students trained on research methods, and completing pre-clinical experiences within research project working with TBI patients with memory deficits.

            * Cognitive Rehabilitation for Concussion: 25 students involved in research project (IRB under review) serving clients with concussion/Mild TBI who have prolonged symptoms after concussion. Students trained on research methods, and completing pre-clinical experiences within research project working with patients with cognitive deficits in prolonged concussion recovery.

            * Social Language Training for Autism Spectrum Disorders and TBI: 20 students involved in research project (IRB under review) serving clients with ASD and TBI focusing on social language deficits and caregiver training. Students trained on research methods, and pre-clinical experiences within a research project working with children with ASD and adults with TBI on social language skills.

            * A service learning experience is in development with Easter Seals Help to Recovery Program and CSUS.
