SCA training

Aphasia institute who we are

Three day SCA training - program

The SCA™ method has been developed by the Aphasia Institute (Toronto, Canada) to support
the participation of people with aphasia in discussions. The core of SCA is to reveal and
acknowledge the competence of people with communication barriers like aphasia. It ensures
the accurate exchange of information, opinions and feelings.
The SCA™ workshop is organized for the first time in Nordic countries. The trainers come from the
Aphasia Institute. After completing the workshop, SLPs will receive a Certificate of Attendance
and be permitted to run “Introduction to SCA™” workshops for interprofessional healthcare
teams. The workshop is aimed for Nordic speech and language therapists. The workshop is held
in English but conversation practice with clients is in Finnish or Swedish.
