From our Talking About series (originally 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).

"The training I attended at the Aphasia Institute served to enhance my existing skills in communicating with persons with aphasia and provided me with an abundance of new knowledge and strategies. I feel confident now that I can better communicate with my patients/clients as well as train other professionals and support personnel to communicate effectively with persons with aphasia. The staff are professional and bring a wealth of experience to the table. Great courses!"
