Pre SCATM Training Example 

Watch and listen to this video clip of a young doctor who has not yet had Supported Conversation for Adults with Aphasia (SCATM) training talking to Gerry, a person with aphasia. 

Think about acknowledging and revealing competence as you watch and listen to this interaction. Think about ways you might help your patients with aphasia to communicate. 


Post SCATM Training Example 

Watch and listen to this video clip of the young doctor who has been trained in SCATM, using supported conversation techniques to communicate with Gerry, a person with aphasia. Let’s see what happens after the young doctor quickly learns how to use a few simple supported conversation techniques.

"Volunteering at the Aphasia Institute has been an amazing experience. It’s such a great feeling to help someone express themselves, or help someone understand another’s message. It can be challenging sometimes, but that just makes the moment a connection goes through that much more special. More than anything, I really appreciate the strong sense of community that the Aphasia Institute creates and being a part of that community."
