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:

1. Oral Care

The Oral Care resource contains the following topics:

  • Why good oral care is important
  • How to keep your teeth or dentures healthy
  • What to tell your dentist

2. Swallowing

The Swallowing resource contains the following topics:

  • Swallowing assessment
  • Swallowing treatment:
    • Changes in posture
    • Swallowing maneuvers
    • Staying safe while eating
    • Food textures and changes
    • Oral hygiene

NOTE: Resource content is gathered by consulting experts on these topics. To the best of our knowledge, this information is accurate. Although we are not experts on these topics, 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).

"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."
