Tami Brancamp, PhD, CCC-SLP has over 25 years of clinical and research experience working with individuals with communication disorders (e.g., aphasia, dementia, traumatic brain injury, other neurodegenerative disorders). Her research has focused on issues that people with aphasia state are important to them. Her latest research is in the area of posttraumatic growth (PTG). Dr. Brancamp and her aphasia advisory team modified the existing Posttraumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI) to make it accessible to people with communication disorders so they can participate in PTG research. Dr. Brancamp is working with a team of researchers, clinicians, people with aphasia and care partners to establish validity of this new measure (PTG-Aphasia). Another area of research and education is Aphasia + Math. Dr. Brancamp is collaborating with a math educator to create an evidence-based training program for clinicians and people with aphasia to address number processing and calculation impairments that can occur after stroke or other brain injury.
Dr. Brancamp has been an American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA member since 1995. She is an Associate Professor and Department Chair in Speech Pathology at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine.
