Validia Kuntoutus Helsinki


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 aphasi​​a. 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.
