Through the program’s techniques, conversation partners such as family members, health care providers, or friends, can help break down the communication barrier and help people with aphasia re-join life’s conversations.

The goals of Supported Conversation for Adults With Aphasia are to:

  1. Acknowledge the competence of the adult with aphasia.
  2. Help the adult with aphasia to reveal his or her competence.
