Research FAQs – Aphasia Institute

There are different application forms based on whether your project requires an expedited or a full ethics committee review (e.g., for posting research flyers vs. requesting further support for recruitment). For further information, see ‘Request to Recruit Research Participants

The Aphasia Institute has limited capacity. We do not routinely analyze data for other organizations.

It is very challenging to get statistics about aphasia.  For our purposes, we often extrapolate from stroke data, as stroke is a leading cause of aphasia. (Other brain conditions can also result in aphasia, such as traumatic brain injuries, brain tumours, dementia, or primary progressive aphasia.)

"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! "
