Example of SCA – Gerry: Pre & Post SCA Training – Aphasia Institute

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.

"I’ve been working at the Aphasia Institute since early 2007 and I love my job. It's incredibly rewarding to work in a collaborative environment where I get to be part of life-changing work for people living with aphasia and the healthcare providers who serve them. I feel affirmed, encouraged and supported as we work together on innovative and dynamic initiatives that accomplish our mission and vision in new, creative and resourceful ways."
