About our Training Approach – Aphasia Institute

You know your clients are competent, intelligent individuals. With Supported Conversation for Adults with Aphasia (SCA™) techniques, you will learn how to work with clients to overcome the communication barriers aphasia creates, and then help them re-engage in everyday life. Best of all, you can teach clients and their loved ones how to communicate again.

The core of the training program is a two-day workshop designed to provide healthcare professionals with the essentials of SCA™.

Once you have learned the fundamentals of SCA™, we offer workshops that show you how to apply SCA™ principles and techniques to such clinical situations as assessment, counselling, group therapy, renegotiating identity through storytelling and working with your clients and their primary communication partners.

Finally, our training offers you an opportunity to watch our community programs in action at the Pat Arato Aphasia Centre, then teaches you how to develop SCA™ – based programs at your own organization.

From the novice student to the experienced clinician, the Aphasia institute has something fresh and exciting for everyone.


The safety of you and our members and staff are of the utmost importance to us.
Due to the on-going Covid-19 Pandemic, several of our workshops are now available ONLINE.

"This course has given me lots of tools to communicate with my clients with aphasia. It has given me new ideas and visions and I’m looking forward to share the SCATM method with my colleagues and other professionals in my rehabilitation centre. Thank you for the course! "
