The Personal A-FROM is based on Living with Aphasia: Framework for Outcome Measurement (A-FROM). It is a concrete and convenient way for clinicians and clients with aphasia to identify goals that include the domains of impairment, environment, life participation, and personal factors encompassing emotions and feelings. The Personal A-FROM gives people with aphasia an accessible way to take ownership of their goals. It also provides a simple way to share goals with the interprofessional team so that they also support the person with aphasia in achieving their goals.

Communicatively Accessible Hearing Screening Protocol (CAHSP)
The Aphasia Institute is pleased to offer you the communicatively accessible hearing screening protocol (CAHSP).
CAHSP was developed by Lisa Samson, speech-language pathologist, at the Aphasia Institute and Joanne DeLuzio, audiologist.
What is the CAHSP?
CAHSP is a resource for professionals to use with clients who have communication barriers. The CAHSP consists of pictographic resources to help the hearing screener and client who “knows more than they can say” effectively exchange messages related to a hearing screening. The CAHSP also includes an audiometric protocol for clients who “know more than they can say”. CAHSP is designed to be used with individuals who need help to understand information and to express themselves. However, CAHSP was piloted with people with aphasia and consequently some resources included are specific to that population.
