Associate Director, Global Patient Services, Shirley Ryan Ability Lab
Researcher/Co-investigator, Coleman Foundation Project: “Measuring and Enhancing the Reliability of Interpreter-Mediated Aphasia Assessments

Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle is the Associate Director of Global Patient Services at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, where he has worked for over a decade as a Spanish interpreter as well as administrator within an international department that helps facilitate access to rehabilitation for hundreds of patients from dozens of countries around the world every year. Matt received his MA in Translation & Interpreting Studies from the University of Illinois’s Center for Translation Studies in 2015 and his BA from the University of Chicago in Latin American History in 2005. Matt has also trained hundreds of Chicago healthcare interpreters for both local language access agencies and community colleges over the last decade. He recently completed a project he designed and obtained funding for via a Shirley Ryan AbilityLab collaboration with the Coleman Foundation to better understand and improve the services received by patients with communication disorders who have Limited English Proficiency and access speech therapy through an interpreter. That project, “Measuring and Enhancing the Reliability of Interpreter-Mediated Aphasia Assessments” was the first study of its kind to not just understand the impact of interpreting on the assessment of patients with aphasia but implement and measure the effect of an intervention to shift the role of the interpreter and improve the reliability of those assessments.
