Supported Conversation for Adults with Aphasia SCA(TM)
We are offering a free webinar (one webinar repeated on two occasions, see dates and times below) that will provide an introduction to Supported Conversation for Adults with Aphasia (SCA™).
SCA™ is an evidence-based communication method that facilitates more productive interactions between caregivers and individuals with communication challenges, particularly those ‘who know more than they can say’.
The webinar will include information about the SCA method, and offer an opportunity to discuss specific practice settings and ways to make the SCA method work for you.
The Dates and Times in January are:
January 17: 12:00 to 1:30
January 31: 12:00 to 1:30
If you would like to attend, please follow this link to register :
Once you have registered, we will send you a link to a self-directed learning module that you can access from the Aphasia Institute’s website. This module includes a basic overview of the SCA method including video-clips that demonstrate specific communication strategies. It may be viewed at any time, according to your schedule. Please allow approximately one hour to complete this learning session.
These webinars will also showcase new pictographic materials that will assist health care professionals to provide important health information to individuals who have communication difficulties. These materials, the Working Together series, cover a wide range of health care topics, and have been created through the Aging at Home Initiative (Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care) and will be provided to all participants from Ontario at no charge. Please follow this link to download these important pictographic resources: http://aphasia.ca/products-page/
We look forward to having you join us in one or more of these learning opportunities,
Presented by Elyse Shumway, co-lead of the Community of Practice.
