Intensive Aphasia Therapy for Canadians

Aphasia therapy for Canadians, by Canadians. Our clients come from all over Canada to participate in our intensive Aphasia Boot Camp. Our program is designed to help Canadians who suffer from Aphasia to learn to manage and deal with Aphasia. If you or a loved one suffer from Intensive Aphasia this is the program for you. For Canadians, By Canadians!

Aphasia Boot Camp

Many of our clients refer to our program as an “Aphasia boot camp”. Here’s why:

  • Speech and language therapy for aphasia for three to four hours daily for four weeks (depending on session selected)
  • Apraxia therapy for those who need it
  • Individual, paired and small group instruction
  • Thorough pre-treatment assessment and orientation
  • Post-treatment assessment, guest speakers, family meetings and debriefing
  • A detailed final report that can serve as a blueprint for targeting further progress after completion of iTAWC
  • Comprehensiveness – we use a variety of evidence-based practice methods including constraint induced language therapy, social participation approaches to aphasia treatment and state of the art technology as appropriate to each client’s needs. (See A Closer Look and Links and References for more detail)
  • Experienced, dedicated therapists with a passion for working with people with aphasia
  • Lots of individual attention – our staffing ratio is two SLPs (speech language pathologists) to every three clients and one grad student to every client in the summer, and one SLP to each client in other sessions
  • Intensive speech therapy for aphasia every day, Monday to Friday, for four weeks!
  • Pre and post assessments and family meetings
  • More specifics about our Aphasia Boot Camp
