From our series Working Together To Help You Where You Live, this pictographic resource is designed to facilitate a conversational partnership between health care practitioners and people with aphasia. It is also ideal for people with limited English language skills. It is based on the techniques of Supported Conversation for Adults with Aphasia™ (SCA™), developed by the Aphasia Institute.
We have included two resources in this package:
The Discharge Planning resource contains the following topics:
Determining the need for assistance
- Identifying the right type of accommodation
- Discussing location, finances, supports, and feelings
The Going Home resource contains the following topics:
Leaving the hospital
- Scheduling outpatient tests and follow-up
- Discussing in-home supports
NOTE: Resource content is gathered by consulting experts on this topic. To the best of our knowledge, this information is accurate. Although we are not experts on this topic, we are experts in how to communicate information to people who know more than they can say (i.e. people with aphasia or other communication challenges).
