Communications Strategies Training Program
The Communication Strategies Training Program is a 10-session solution designed to help individuals experiencing difficulty expressing themselves as a result of a stroke, Parkinson’s, MS or Aphasia.
Patients work with their communication partner to learn strategies to overcome communication barriers.
Our team of Speech-Language Pathologists and Communication Disorders Assistants provide low-tech strategies and techniques for effective alternative methods of communication using accessible tools such as pen and paper, pictures, communication books, boards and other familiar low-tech tools.
We also offer the cross-discipline support for patients to explore higher-tech tools that may further assist with communication.
A therapist’s (OT or SLP) referral is preferred, however patients may sign up independently by filling out our referral form; patients are accepted on a case-by-case basis at any point in the continuum of care.
This is a fee-for-service program.
Improve communicative independence
Overcome communication barriers
Establish comfort and ease using communication alternatives
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ATC has had to limit the number of referrals we can see. Consequently, we can only accommodate our internally referred patients and will not be accepting any community referrals for our Seating and AAC clinics at this time.
We will continue to see our existing ALS, stroke, MS and PD patients and internal referrals for these diagnoses in Seating and AAC clinic.
Thank you for your understanding.
