Aphasia Training for Health Professionals – a Virtual 2 Part Workshop with Antonella Samson, S-LP

May 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

A two part interactive workshop providing general knowledge of communication barriers and impairments and training in the evidence-based techniques of Supported Conversation for Adults with Aphasia™ (SCA) . SCA™ methods help acknowledge and reveal the competence of individuals who “know more than they can say”. Health professionals working in stroke care will find this workshop valuable. This 2 part workshop is suitable for those who are new to SCA™ or as a refresher course.

This is a virtual event – a Zoom link will be provided before the event. This event is interactive, and therefore, a webcam and microphone are needed on your computer to participate.
